SOCIAL MEDIA 2.❤️

We refer to social media as 2.0, where we create and share content via a social network enabled by technology. However technology is not always considered inclusive and can be impersonal, and may not connect with those communities who would benefit most from inclusion in society.

Therefore through “Your Creative Space” + Kolider by Noiascape, we aim to make the “SOCIAL” of social media more inclusive. With Social Media 2.♥ “SHARE” a connection with a member of the local community and spread warmth and goodwill to our neighbours. At the same time rekindle the essence of human touch and expression through “MEDIA” - in this case publishing with paper, cards, pencils and handwriting. 

BUILD THE WALL { OF LOVE }

“BUILD THE WALL { OF LOVE }” is a community project. The objective is to “spread the love” from Askew Road and beyond, to other locations through the use of personal stories. Collaborate and spread the love by writing a message using a postcard - whether that be for a partner, husband or wife, friend, favourite pet, past partner(?), best friend, family member and even messages in memory to those who are no longer with us. 

Your messages will form the bricks that build this wall of love. Let's #SPREADTHELOVE . 

Postcards and writing tools are provided. Feel free to drop by any time during our opening hours to write and customise your postcard message.

We aim to consolidate all the messages with a map to see where we have spread love to.

YOUR CREATIVE SPACE

"Your Creative Space", is a work room to encourage anyone to unleash their creativity through writing, paper cutting and crafting. 

We also encourage recycling and upcycling at Your Creative Space. It's cool to mix and match the old and the new, at the same time fun to bring a new lease of life to past objects. In the paper crafting activities, past issues of magazines will also be provided as a source of inspiration to create new collages of paper cuts. 

Workshops to upcycle forgotten pieces of clothing that are deemed unwearable because there are holes in them, be it grandpa's old jumper, your favourite scarf or tote bag. By patching these apparel items, we #SPREADTHELOVE to them and make them good to use again. 

Paper, art tools, sewing materials are available at Your Creative Space to encourage you to make, write and have fun!
