Participatory design | Social Innovation
Capsule 2051 was a design response to the brief 'promote hope' in Lambeth. It consists of a workshop aimed at promoting positive forward thinking through visulisation within marginalised communities.

Initial research led us to meet several active community groups, all working toward improving the lives of local people. A common theme between all organisations was a thriving micro-community. However, we found that despite existing knowledge of their neighbours, each community space was relatively isolated from it’s surrounding organisations. We saw this as an opportunity.
The preliminary project target was to link up each uncoordinated group in order to form lasting connections so as each organisation could share facilities progressing toward a better established community framework.
Our secondary target was to encourage forward thinking. Having this understanding of time and alerting people to the power of involvement and control of actions taken toward both their own personal future in addition to the future of the areas surrounding them, was a major part of the project.
