PLAYBOX DESIGN JAM

PLAYBOX DESIGN JAM
In collaboration with DEAR PIGS
'Design like you give a damn'
 
Want to see your craziest ideas come to live? Want to spend a weekend in the funkiest place in Brussels and meet some new people? Fancy building the city together? Then we’ve got some good news for you! Cultureghem is organising it’s first Design Jam and you are very much invited!
 
Last year we started working on our magical plan to transform Abattoir into the biggest covered playground of Brussels. We’ve developped COURT CIRCUIT, a PLAYBOOK, added our BARATTOIR lunch restaurant but now it’s time to take the next step: PLAYBOX. PLAYBOX is a series of gigantic mobile cubes filled with all the tools the kids need to create their own playground. We’ve developped the first four ourselves, check the progress here and asked the neighbourhood kids to share their ideas for the next in line.
 
Now we’re inviting you to really build the city together. In a fun filled weekend we will split you up in teams and set new challenges, very playfull challenges: Develop the kids ideas into buildable structures as crazy as you can!
 
Want to come? Register here!
