Activating Our Minds #15

Anna Callaghan-Leonard & Jessica Hutchinson - 2 mins

These are three of the many stories from across the world that have activated our minds and informed our work this week.

Hands-on with Communication

The LEGO Foundation has teamed up with blind associations to launch a set of Braille bricks that can literally get people hands-on with communication. The bricks, which are available in 2020, represent numbers and letters in several languages and can be used by both sighted and visually impaired children to learn and play together. To make things even more accessible, LEGO® Braille Bricks will be provided free to selected institutions around the world!




Sesame Street’s 50th-anniversary campaign highlights how important it is to respect one another, and how it can bring us all together - even amid a disagreement. With Game of Thrones hysteria once again sweeping the nation, a familiar furry red friend has stepped in to teach sworn enemies Cersei and Tyrion how they can get along by respecting one another.


What’s your type?

Using research in psychology, Adobe have recently launched a fun quiz to help you determine what type of creative you are. Mixing multiple choice questions with vibrant visuals (would you expect anything less from Adobe?), the quiz assesses your basic traits and views of the world to reveal your creative type and help you to better understand what this means.
