Co-creating

Being co-creative is about being together with purpose to make something new that you couldn't make on your own. Co-creating demands cooperation, collaboration and co-production. It's difficult. It can be rewarding. It's ideological, political and democratic. It asks for a different way of being in the world; a being together in the world, not being separate or being on your own.

ArtScapers have explored co-creating by planning a cityscape, creating an exhibition, making up enormous numbers together.

"And like for example, if you want to do like a pet shop and another person wants to do a pet shop and they decided to put their pet shop in the new development site then you had to sort of work together. But it was really fun doing that because lots of people listened to your ideas and then you could put your ideas." Florence, 7, Student

Does it have all that a city needs? How do you navigate through it? How many people will live there?
