We are born to be creative.
The world is changing every single day with new challenges emerging every single minute. As a member of the global village, we should learn to step into others’ shoes, and respond to the happenings and people around us – and this is the ultimate essence of ‘empathy’.
The root of creativity and the purpose of design relies on our ability to think and see with different perspectives. The process of practising creativity is indeed a set of design thinking that begins with empathy.
This year PMQ collaborates with multidisciplinary creative partners and organisations to introduce design thinking to our kids through empathy in different daily contexts. Kids can experience this problem-solving methodology through iterative process, namely ‘Empathize’, ‘Define’, ‘Ideate’, ‘Prototype’, and ‘Test’. They will be encouraged to think with different angles in order to understand the users’ needs and problems; and from that, develop possible solutions, and through realization they will struggle through the process of ‘attempt, failure, and improve’, and finally ‘succeed’. Interpersonal communications and collaboration will also be important elements throughout the whole training.
BEING BEINGS Mini-camp Programme description
Let’s unlock the key to children’s growth with picture books!
BEING BEINGS Mini-camp is designed for children from age 5 to 8 and their parents. Our team of tutors led by Kenny Or, founder of Little Green Feet, together with psychologist Dr. Ernest Lee will incorporate a selection of picture books in the camp to allow participants to experience design thinking by learning to observe and be empathetic of their surroundings.
The camp consists of three parts: a seminar for parents*, a selected book sharing and guided tour of “Being With You” Picture book Exhibition*, and “The Toy Emergency Room”—an online design workshop for families. In the seminar hosted by Kenny Or and Dr. Ernest Lee, parents are encouraged to view the world from a child’s perspective through everyday examples and picture books, while learning about the practical techniques of giving empathy education to children. Then, with the book sharing and guided tour of our picture book exhibition, parents can explore the topic of personal growth with their kids, sowing in them the seeds of empathy for their life journey ahead. Lastly, starting with a story about toys, Kenny and designer Icy Ng will guide young participants to empathize with their playthings by applying the design thinking mindset, they will learn to treat and treasure what they own with kindness as they go on to repair and decorate an “imperfect” wooden spinning top.
*Corresponding content will be distributed to participants in the form of pre-recorded videos.
