Activating Our Minds #50

Anna Callaghan-Leonard & Jessica Hutchinson - 3 mins

With 2020 coming to an end, the final Activating our Minds of the year is dedicated to activations that will inspire positivity and creative thinking for the year ahead!

Toy Rescue

With Christmas out of the way and many toys undoubtedly broken already - 3D printer Dagoma has come to the rescue! Toying with the idea of throwing things away? This campaign seeks to save treasured toys from the bin and fix them instead - giving beloved friends a new lease of life. Along with the environmental benefits of keeping otherwise perfectly good toys from landfill, Toy Rescue teaches children to value their cherished toys and dispose of a throwaway mindset.


Colour without Borders

Colouring without borders invites children to spread their imagination outside of the lines, and borders. The beautiful colouring book provides children with a way to empathise and discuss the impact of borders and family separation - with the proceeds all going to the Families Belong Together coalition. Along with the book’s powerful message, its pages are filled with unfinished illustrations from artists all over the world - removing the defined borders, lines or edges as a symbolic message of optimism.

The Sketchbook Project

The Brooklyn Art Library is no ordinary book collection - with over 41,000 sketchbooks from over 130 different countries, visitors can search for just about anything. From painting to photography, the library describes itself as a free museum where you can get hands-on with art. We were drawn in by the way the Sketchbook Project encourages people to engage in random discovery and not judge a book by it’s cover. Fancy getting involved? Request a sketchbook from their site to start 2020 with a colourful burst of creativity!
