Studio Olafur Eliasson: Earth Speakr – Tech-Kit Packages
We took over the preparation, packaging and shipping of tech-kits for workshops throughout Europe.
Earth Speakr is an artwork by Olafur Eliasson and created with kids across the EU. Kids can use the Earth Speakr app to record a message about the future of the planet.
We, Openers, realised a project which included sending smartphones and creative materials out to ten locations across Europe for workshops. These workshops aimed to provide access to the app but also to educate the kids about their environment, sustainability and their own impact on the topics.
The project especially (but not only) addressed kids who don’t have a smartphone themselves. Beside the preparation of the packages we also assisted the workshop hosts on the technical side.
The whole project also required a sustainability concept. This included buying from sustainable brands, going to local shops instead of ordering online where possible or even giving the smartphones to charity once the project is over.
