BRINC’Aveiro - street play

This initiative, integrated in the Aveiro Municipality’s Participatory Budget (OPAD 2021), aims to create new dynamics for inter-generational socialising in different areas of the city, bringing Aveiro’s streets to life by intervening and adapting spaces and encouraging everyone to enjoy them as a place to socialise and play. Design Factory Aveiro, as a partner in the project, is developing and producing a system of street furniture to install in the selected streets and encourage socialising and safe street play.

Through the organisation of several co-creation sessions entitled “Let’s play in the street?”, adults and children worked together on some of the concepts and equipment developed, in a brainstorming and prototyping dynamic to reflect on identifying improvements, ways of using and “mistakes” in the street furniture proposals, in a dynamic exploration, testing and prototyping session promoted by DFA.

This is an ongoing project, and the video summaries of the co-creation sessions that have already taken place can be seen here:
