This summer, let the kids take charge!
Creativity is never an exclusive trait of creative talents. If we allow children to cultivate creativity from a young age it will surely become their life-long asset. In the foreseeable future, our society will not only yearn for tech-savvy professionals, but also those who are creative and human-centric minded. Creativity is therefore crucial to make the world a better place to live in.
We believe that creativity is inborn and children are innately and infinitely creative. In what ways could we help them to boost their confidence and put creativity into action in their daily lives?
PMQ has partnered up with multidisciplinary designers and creative teams from architecture, art and STEM sectors to stimulate kids’ creative instincts, while unleashing their creativity and confidence. By adapting the five-stage practice system of Design Thinking—a methodology of creative problem-solving that includes the steps to “Empathize”, “Define”, “Ideate”, “Prototype”, and “Test”—kids will learn to spot problems, generate solutions and finally actualise a design through empathetic and multi-perspective thinking. The process of trial and error to problem-solving will be enriched through teamwork and interpersonal communication.
