Colorways are opt-in seasonal and topical civic #design conversations to orchestrate artful living. Some examples:
To inspire neighborhood block, feet-on-the-street thinking to identify #opportunity for #CivicDesign: PinupsPresidential gangsters, showgirls, and songsters. The lawful & lawless from every era, and examples of marginalized peoples using ingenuity to govern themselves where government fails: Gatsby to Compton to Barbarella. Civic conversation about conflict management and security #HitTheDojoBro.
Valentines & other Consumer observances
Ava's #ChambreDuCommerce: moving along the contours of our existing behavior can help drive adoption of #GovernanceStandards for our citizen. Weave symbols, forms and colorways for any sacred or secular observance. Love: Kama Sutra for #LifeLongLearning, #SacredSexy for #PinupsPresidential (staying connected to our sacred mojo fire as adults), #ShowNTell for #Youth Sex Ed
Romans & REDS
Republicans, Democrats, Socialists, Communists- the red, the blue the left the right. How are decisions made, resources allocated and justice served when we apply the #BeliefDNA #Values of a particular system to a #NeighborhoodBlock situation? (#Lobbyists) #CivicArt from #Romans and #REDS #collections can be used to relate governance ideas and #practice to #education and #CivicDesign. Global citizens want to know: who handles this #HXD best? We select the best, most interesting or relevant case studies to the #SocialWhiteHouse.
Single color #Colorways conversations serve many purposes: take your "crutch" color to the max in one quarter, then remove every item from sight. Substitute a single color (or form or material) for a hue you avoid or feel less confident with. Take Inventory- figure out what's needed or what needs repair. Kick a collection of neutrals into high gear: cool it down or warm it up. Relate personal, local>global stories and associations with a single color (like REDS for communism) to inspire #LifeLongLearning.
