"It’s never going to work!”

@ VOL 4 ON MAY 31, 2018

That’s the answer I often get when I present my ideas to city councils. I like to inject a little craziness in our day to day lives to bring people together, and challenge the preconception that people in cities are too individualistic and closed off. Because time and time again, I have found that people from all walks of life and cultures are just waiting for opportunities to get together and connect.
