We invited a group of young Mmofra Foundation members to contribute their own ideas to the Playtime in Africa design charrette. After all, the park and library will be for them.
First of all, we invited them to come up with a definition of a charrette they could relate to…
“A charrette is an intensive design and planning process which brings together people from different backgrounds to explore ideas for a particular site.”
Their input in gathering ideas and documenting the event was invaluable. You can see the outcomes of these brainstorming sessions in our gallery of notes and sketches from the charrette.
Day two of the charrette coincided with a Mmofra Foundation session, giving visitors a glimpse of the energy and creative play the Playtime in Africa project is all about.
Youth facilitator Elisabeth found time between directing sessions of Summer Shakespeare Ghana, a Mmofra sponsored project, to animate the teen design huddle and lead the report-back . Mmofra alum David dropped by to help out as well.
