VOQ meets Metropolia University



Hello everyone!
Olá à todos!!

Some weeks ago (March 1st) we had a very interesting and funny gathering with students of Environmental Engineering from Metropolia University (Vantaa - Finland). The students there are working in a artistic/creative project about up-cycling the campus' scraps and waste into art works or objects. Therefore VOQ, as Nicholas Torretta, was invited to hold an 2 hours experience about creative process, sustainability, arts and up-cycling.
Algumas semanas atrás (1.3) nós tivemos uma experiência muito divertida com estudantes de Engenharia Ambiental da Universidade Metropolia em Vantaa - Finlândia. Lá, os estudantes estão trabalhando em um projeto de reutilização de sucatas geradas no campus para criar um projeto criativo de fim artistico ou funcional. Para isso, o VOQ, la representado por Nicholas Torretta, foi convidado para realizar uma experiência de duas horas sobre processo criativo, sustentabilidade, artes e reutilização. 




In this mix of workshop, lecture, play, discussion and easygoing time we had many different and funny activities to change the mood into an open minded and creative environment. 
Nessa mistura de workshop, palestra, brincadeira, conversa e momento de lazer, tivemos atividades muito divertidas para criar um clima aberto e criativo.

 


The groups of  students are working on their projects now and we will open a space for them to show their results to you (if they want so, of course hehe). I am looking forward to see them! 
Os grupos de estudantes estão trabalhando em seus projetos e nós abriremos um espaço aqui para que eles mostrem os resultados (se assim quiserem, claro rs). Estou ansioso pra ver o que eles criarão!



It was a really pleasant experience for me, but I believe that better that seeing my side of the experience, would be even better to see the students' opinions about the experience. Therefore, please, if you were there, if you feel like commenting, leave you comment about how you felt it, it would be very nice for us and for everyone to know how it was and how it affected the creative work of your group.
Foi uma experiência muito boa, mas acredito que melhor do que saber a minha opinião sobre o processo, é melhor ainda ver a opinião dos que participaram do evento. Portanto, se você esteve lá e quer comentar sobre algo, deixe sua opinião sobre o que você achou da experiência e como ela afetou o trabalho criativo de seu grupo.

Looking forward to see the results of the group works!
Estamos ansiosos para ver o resultado dos grupos!

See you!
Até mais!

It was pleasure meeting with you. We had a great time together talking about Environmental art and design. We were highly inspired and motivated with the activities done.
While we were talking about the slides, we felt like it would be better with more details. It could explain procedures and tools, if possible.
Hope we will meet soon with new ideas and innovations !
