Twenty illustrators were invited by Friends of Design to turn a pair of sneaker skates into artworks portraying their heroes. “Heroes are characters most of us can relate to through comics, movies or various other mediums. They live in our imagination, in the games and stories we tell. A hero can be a character that the artist considers special, whether related to its abilities, heroic actions or anything else they deem worthy to be called a hero. Heroes are seen as inspiring, which is also what we’re trying to achieve with our exhibition.” – Philipp Schmidt, Curator
#cocreateSA curates 12 moving stories of non-motorised transport (NMT) and celebrates how mobility impacts the lives of people. The scope of NMT not only connects kids to school and parents to work, but also leads aspiring people to economic opportunities and the chance to live a dream by crossing a continent. The exhibition shines a light on the many ways NMT changes lives and impacts communities.
