Graffiti on the Playground…
August 23, 2008
To my surprise I found some new graffiti near to my home on a playground for kids while we were cycling through the city. It came to my mind that this would be the perfect outlet for the kids:
being in fresh air, spending their energies on creative actions instead of loitering, smoking, drinking and taking drugs.
If the larger cities, where you have the problem with youngsters not knowing what to do, would offer more spaces for young “artists” to test their talents we would have much less vandalism. I am convinced.
Opportunities such as these – walls erected on playgrounds to give the kids some space for their inspirations truely does not cost a lot of money. Instead this would be the solution to a lot of problems of the suburbs… (please see post below City under attack)
