Earlier this year I worked closely with the Frisian Library Service to create the project ‘Impact through connection, at school‘ together. At the core was my model of agency and a process I designed to guide a group towards exploring using both technology and methods to address a local issue. Today I had a conversation with Jeroen de Boer, of the FryskLab team, who had involved me in putting my idea to practice, at a primary school with a group of 10 year olds. We talked about what came after the project that took place in January to March.

That’s when I received some awesome feedback.
“Your experimental process has basically become the way we work now during workshops and with groups”.
He also had heard from the teacher of the class we worked with that “the pupils said it was the best thing in the entire school year”.
The project was partly financed by the Dutch Royal Library and they indicated it was “one of the most inspiring projects they helped finance this year”.
That sounds like a great starting point to explore what else we can do together next year.
