#PaintTheCourt is a case study and open source design in how design can:
*Bring diverse communities together to create real impact in the short, medium and long term.
*Uncover and solve challenges in a united effort that brings everyone value.
*Sustainably transform and promote public spaces.
The project's guiding principles tackle issues faced by events, exhibitions, design weeks and festivals across the world:
*RESOURCE & SUSTAINABILITY
>Create a vision that encourages responsible and sustainable use of materials and resources.
>We can't afford to create throwaway objects without justification
*IMPACT & HERITAGE
>Many individuals & organisations with similar values sharing skills & resources for a bigger combined impact.
*INTERACTION & RELEVANCE
>In an age where we have access to so many of our mentors online, physical events need to be interactive and exciting.
>Less talking at people, more listening to them.
