An epidemic of loneliness is sweeping the country. But we at the Better Block believe that through beautiful and thoughtful design, we can create a more connected community.
We need your help in doing so.
Creating Connections is an open invitation to designers, artists, architects, and innovators to explore the profound impact of design on how people connect with others, the universe, and themselves in today's world. The competition aims to heal, unite, and inspire sustainability, inclusivity, and human and spiritual connection, and builds from the Jewish imperatives to improve our global community and honor the interconnectedness of all people and the planet.
Your challenge is to create a public infrastructure piece that reimagines public spaces as catalysts for creating moments of connection, empathy, and shared experiences.
Your creation should be a testament to the idea that design can not only be pragmatic but also bridge divides, foster unity, and promote a deeper sense of connection with the world around us–and it should align with Better Block’s Wikiblock philosophy that anyone, anywhere can create beautiful and meaningful design.
Join us in this competition to create a piece that helps reshape public spaces into beacons of connection and understanding. Let's use the language of design to bridge gaps, foster empathy, and celebrate the beauty of our shared humanity. Together, we can create spaces that inspire modern-day manifestations of spirituality through connection, compassion, and our shared humanity.
