The creative process often requires us to work closely with different people and to empathise with their thoughts and needs. Delightful solutions to problems can be created through continuous communication, collaboration, and sharing.
Due to the pandemic, kids have been spending most of their learning time online from home. With digital interactions taking the place of real-life socialising among the kids, we see the rise of a new generation that is adept at technology but challenged by interpersonal communication.
This year’s PMQ Seed Programme is themed “BETTER TOGETHER”. Once again, we will work with school-age kids to apply design thinking methodology in the creation of imaginative solutions based on empathetic discovery. Team collaboration will be a main focus in all workshop activities, through which participants will learn to respect diverse voices and work with each other’s strengths and weaknesses, all while building new knowledge and skills. Parents and teachers will also be involved in the human-centred co-creation process together with PMQ Seed’s teaching teams; it is our hope that grown-ups can gain valuable insights into the present and future of education by engaging with important issues from kids’ points of view.
Under the support of Create Hong Kong of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region as the Lead Sponsor, PMQ Seed continue to work with multiple creative teams this year to present six key programmes: “Creative Camp”, “School Outreach”, “Mini-camp”, “Creative Festival”, “Train the Trainer Workshop”, and the “Seed Online”. An exciting series of creative activities, each tailor-made for kids aged six to twelve, parents, or educators, is in the works—we can’t wait to share this journey with everyone!
