The abundance of simple upcycling and recycling practices available through online tutorials is truly remarkable. Yet, it's amusing to realize that many of these techniques are merely the simple gestures you've been practicing since childhood. For you, creating festive decorations from plastic bags instead of purchasing new ones was second nature. Transforming found objects into useful and beautiful creations was ingrained in your upbringing, without any consideration for the value of environmental conservation or waste reduction. Perhaps it was merely a result of limited resources, rather than a conscious effort to protect the planet.

In our contemporary, contradictory society, inundated with images of brand-new, luxurious goods, your inherent knowledge has become invaluable. It's not just about learning how things work in this new environment; it's about tapping into your existing knowledge and sharing it with others. Nada Ahmad beautifully compiles a list of these familiar practices, inviting you to contribute your own. Don't hesitate to add to this collective wisdom!

“European love more their pets than their human fellows”. We’ve heard this sentence a couple of times, and we have to admit, that it is a little bit true sometimes. While attempting to show in a short story the nature of this particular relationship to our animals, we were also led to put ourselves in their “shoes”, imagining how smells, sounds and the mere company of other dog and human fellows can constitute a complete and fulfilled univers in itself and to think about how it can inspire us, humans too, mainly to take care about our environment…

We also discovered that creating a photo short story with family or friends might be also be an excellent co-creative activity to be repeated in workshops to explore different subjects.

Especially that for the editing part, you also have at your disposal many nice tools and apps that can facilitate to create layouts and add bubbles if you are not that familiar with more complex graphic applications. You may use COMICA for android, or put your photos on CANVA and edit them online.
