This should be made public

This project has been made in the context of the Shift! project.
This project was realized in four different cities: Luxembourg, Cairo, Milan and Bangkok.
The principal idea was to think about what ideas, what discussions should be made public.
A workspace was created in each city, providing all the elements for writing, drawing... The visitors were invited to express their ideas on a white space on special sheets. At the end of the project, all the proposals were displayed next to each other, forming a large wallpaper.
In Cairo, white sheets were laid in the streets, inviting passersby to express themselves. Despite a limited freedom of expression in Egypt, the blanks were filled quickly with very interesting comments.
In Bangkok, the workspace was located in a shopping center, the busiest places in Thailand.
