I‘m in catch up mode on my blog feed reading. Some wonderful work has been keeping me away from them. Here’s what struck chords today.
Tom Fishburne on the not-so useful role of the devil’s advocate. Resistance in disguise.
Katie Chatfield gets shouty about the value of play.
Julian Dobson notices that taking care with exteriors and spaces makes a difference to our cities and their public spaces.

I cut my facilitation teeth years ago on a program that brought communities, designers and artists together to enhance their public spaces. Social Spaces reminds me of those years and the power of bringing people together to explore and create opportunities for their community. Social Spaces’ Idea Cards include this photo of New York’s High Line project, a wonderful example of community and using what you have. Ten years ago, two people wanted to save a disused railway line from demolition. That initiative created a public park and has blossomed into so much more. Thanks to Erin Kreeger for the link to Social Spaces.
