Alola is a non-profit organisation which by celebrating diversity aims to foster a social wellbeing and inclusion for the next generations.
The project is a set of tools (tangible kits and paper activities) to facilitate creative and cultural workshops for children of different origins between seven and twelve years old. These playful activities enable children to interact beyond language and cultural differences, and create a moment of sharing, openness, and tolerance. By adopting an open-source philosophy, Alola wants to enable everyone to become active agents in creating a flourishing multicultural society.
This project emerged from a creative collaborative residency at thecamp, in south France, after which we co-founded Alola. Behind Alola is an interdisciplinary and international collective of researchers, scientists, designers and makers.
