Participation with the environment of the city is something I want to encourage through my ideas and proposal. The aspect of play and engaging with the city in a different way is also important. Rather than just using disused areas, and putting people at odds with complete unfamiliarity, regularly used settings could also be involved. During the summer most people have a park or specific green space they go to, whether it’s local or just their favourite place to go. Using interactive events or workshops in multiple parks across the city could work to create a connections within communities. They could feed into a larger event that connects communities from across Manchester. Placing unfamiliar experiences or objects within known spaces could also create links to lesser frequented areas.
