Although it’s not exactly what I’d call a communal activity, who am I to say? People were together, outside, and talking – the first and most important part of creating community and opening up to one another.
I’m curious to see if it will lead to people becoming more spontaneous, playful, and ultimately trusting and happy.
After all, it’s innate for us to feel great when we belong in a community.
And as Jan Gehl, the Danish urban designer said,
“Space should be like a musical instrument that suggests how it is to be played but does not predict all the wonderful music that can be made by its owner”
