嚮光計畫的 BUILD A HOME 【改造夢想家】獨一無二的!我們相信藝術創作純粹的力量,也堅信孩子們都應該有權力為自己發聲,參與創作的過程!Bright Side Projects BUILD A HOME is like no other. We not only believe in the simple power of art and creation but work with the kids and believe in their rights to have a voice! (English below)

我們堅持讓藝術家、大朋友和孩子們一起腦力激盪,共同執行創作。希望 BUILD A HOME 的創作計劃能夠每年持續在台灣不同的兒少機構舉辦,發揮更深更廣的影響力!在你們每一個人的支持下,我們有信心繼續做得更多更好!如果你/妳有希望改造的空間或是希望支持我們的行動,都請隨時與我們聯絡。在周日成功的腦力激盪課程了解孩子之後,一天一怪獸的藝術家游尊均開始設計大型壁畫上的怪獸雛形。經過好幾次反覆的修改調整,終於生出了一隻巨大的紫色怪獸「PoPo」!PoPo 希望在這裡交到很多的朋友,並且與孩子們創作的機器人們成為一家人!

活動當天早上,由Rhea和藝術家游尊鈞為大家簡介整天的工作內容以及預計創作的牆面區域,接著便將孩子們分成小組。孩子們先各自回到教室討論他們的機器人們該如何與新朋友 PoPo 互動,接著在指定負責牆面區域上用粉筆描繪出機器人的輪廓。

同時,我們也讓孩子們將自己的機器人特徵轉化,在 MOODIWOOD 所提供的木板凳上進行創作。這些板凳會在MOODIWOOD9/30舉辦的募款活動中拍賣,讓孩子知道藝術也可以幫助別人!在一段時間的嘗試後,我們終於找到可以讓不同組別的孩子們順利切換完成壁畫創作與小木凳改造的方法。

 

我們還為大家準備了特別的午餐驚喜!一位曾經在 2012 年參加嚮光工作坊的孩子,從新竹清泉搭便車前來台中幫大家製作美味的壽司!從前參與課程的孩子,現在變成了擔負午餐重責的廚師,台中的孩子們都對壽司的製作過程充滿了好奇。

因為前一天便住進慈馨,這天一大早天還沒亮就有大朋友們開始為壽司和水果沙拉備料,我們還加入了素鬆和泡菜,讓純素壽司的口味更特別!孩子們也捧場地將壽司們一掃而空,其中一個孩子甚至一人吃了六碗!

嚮光協會一直希望和孩子們持續保持長久的連繫並為他們提供實習及工作機會。這次從清泉趕來的參與協助的大孩子讓我們看見這項工作的一線曙光,也還好有他的加入,讓我們午餐準備能夠順利如期完成!午餐後孩子們睡了個午覺,醒來後發現現場已經準備好特製的日本流水涼麵囉!

盡管天氣炎熱,孩子們都還是從早到傍晚全程參與創作。在壁晝終於大工告成以後,孩子們退後欣賞自己的大作,和身旁的大朋友說:「我覺得我們畫的真的太棒了!」。

孩子們花一整天時間彩繪改造的 MOODIWOOD 板凳每一張都是完美的作品,在拍賣當天不到二十分鐘的時間就被搶購一空!嚮光長期以來的主要支持者之一 Rachel 一個人就收藏了兩張板凳!

我們也樣特別感謝這次所有人提供給我們的支持與協助,雖然我們無法募得計畫所需的全額,但我們還是盡力在資源所及範圍內達成最好的成果。真心感謝每一個贊助我們的朋友們!

Artists, Big Friends, and Kids brainstorm together and create together. We hope that BUILD A HOME can be a part of many other children centric institutions in Taiwan on an annual basis.  Hopefully in the future we can improve even further and to do more. With your funding and support we know we can do it! If you have a home or would like to know ways to sponsor, please contact us.

After our successful brainstorming session from Sunday, our artist 游尊鈞  from A Monster A Day proceeded to draft the proposed artwork for the mural. After a few tweaks and revisions “PoPo” was born! A large purple monster with the purpose of making friends and becoming family with the kids robotic creations!

We split into our groups again in the morning after Rhea and our artist 游尊鈞 introduced the tasks for the day to the kids and showed them the areas for painting the robots. Heading back up to the classroom, groups discussed how to modify their creations to better interact with new friend PoPo. Each was tasked with of the area they were responsible for painting. After chalk outlines were drawn onto the walls outside the robots were ready for their new home.

We also had kids take inspiration from the robots features to transfer onto wooden stools provided by MOODIWOOD for their charity fundraiser to be hosted on 9/30. After several deliberations we decided how best to maneuver in a non-chaotic way of having the team members switch between painting the mural and their one of a kind wooden stools.

This time lunch was a special treat. One of our former students who first joined our workshop in 2012 was able to hitch a ride from ChingChuan and help us make sushi for all the children! It was great to be able to give him responsiblities and see the children enjoy his creation and also marvel at how it was made. We really “spiced” up the sushi ingredients this time with vegetarian floss and kimchi! We spent the night here so a few of us woke up extra early to prep the ingredients for the rolls and the fruit salad. The fruit salad was a hit yet again, the record for Tsu Kuang children was six bowls!

Bright Side Projects has been talking about keeping in touch with kids and providing internship and work opportunities. So excited to see the potential for this program in 2018. We really needed the extra hands as there were a lot of children that day and having him come in at the right time made all the difference! After lunch came a short rest for kids and the woke up from their naps to a fun summer time tradition of flowing noodles played/eaten by Japanese kids.

The day was long and despite the heat kids stayed on task from morning until late in the afternoon. After completion one of the children stepped back from their masterpiece admiring it, telling their Big Friend “The part that I drew is cannot be more perfect!”

The MOODIWOOD stools were perfect as well, kids spending the entire day painting and adding to it. We are happy to say that all of these were snatched up immediately within 20 minutes of arriving at the event, simply amazing. Rachel, who is a huge supporter of Bright Side Projects, now has two in her venerable collection.

With the conclusion of this project, we are so grateful for the support. While we were unable to raise all the funds we asked for, we did what we could. Thank you to our sponsors!
