What will happen in your session?

“Smiley Pursuit” introduces a design thinking process to spark and expand visual literacy in kids, their parents and other festival goers. At a game—a real life “augmented” reality—participants will be challenged with a fun and creative scavenger hunt while learning to see things when looking. Working in teams of 3 the gamers will hunt for faces-in-places and frame as many of them with masking tape. Whether smiling, sad, bewildered, angry, annoyed, surprised, cheeky…, each guerrilla framing of a smiley (face-in-place) at Mozilla Festival brings one point. In a form of snapped photographs, whichever team collects most points in 90min wins the game and the challenge trophy.

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

The aim of the “Smiley Pursuit” challenge is to encourage visual literacy through design thinking in a fun and creative workshop format. The goal of this session is to draw upon participants’ intuition, imagination and creativity while exploring possibilities of what could be a great and innovative capture of a face-in-place. Outcomes of the session will be many creative and silly pictures of smileys ready to be posted as original content on participants’ social media feeds. Furthermore, once being attuned to seeing faces-in-places participants will not be able to ignore hundreds of them in their everyday. The team which collects the most points will take home a trophy for winning the challenge.

If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.

The session will require or equip participants with several weapons: tape, camera and a felt tip marker. Coloured masking tape (for easy removal) will help us frame faces-in-places. Each team will need at least one digital camera for collecting what they have been hunting down and a felt tip markers to sign each smiley with a group name. The session requires only some coloured felt tip markers from Mozilla Festival. I assume at least one person in the group will have a digital camera. The rest will be provided by me. Let the games begin!

@metod - This sounds like fun! Can this work in a 60 mins time slot rather than 90? And we could schedule you twice instead?

@EPIKhub thanks for accepting the session. Yes it would work in 60min slot. And if you'd be keen on scheduling it twice that would be double fun!!

@metodb I'll see how the schedule pans out for the space and let you know - I would recommend you make plans to be at the festival for the full 3 days Friday to Sunday, is that possible?
