SIDE BY SIDE
Side by Side is a collaboration between Design Manchester and Shenzhen Fringe Arts Centre in a child-friendly city. Developing innovative ideas and potentially prototype and pilot projects to make the cities more child-friendly through the exploration of the public realm. This can include the considerations of education, safety, social skills and connecting young people with places aligning with the City of Manchester's plan to make 2022 its year of the child. The aim is to create integrated UK and Chinese design teams including professional designers, artists and students, and to co-design with children in the two cities.
