Sneaker Workshop

For families with children

11.02.2023. - 16.04.2023.

Offering an opportunity to create your own sneaker prototype for an imaginary future scenario, the workshop fosters an inclusive discussion of the ways in which the choices we make today inform the world of tomorrow and of inventive takes on challenges through indulging in flights of imagination.

What could our daily life look like in the future – in 10, 50 or even 100 years? How are we going to work, travel, what will our hobbies and future sports be like? What will our cities, outdoors and the human body look like? Finally, what will the shoes worn by future generations look like? 

The sneaker workshop invites you to explore hypothetical futures by creatively imagining different development paths that the world might follow, from realistic to completely fantasy-driven ones. It helps discover the production process of sports shoes or sneakers, an incredibly popular type of footwear today, choose a scenario for one of the hypothetical futures and create your own sneakers specifically for this world of tomorrow. 

The workshop is held as part of the ‘Sneakers: Eco x Ego’ exhibition and was developed by learning project curator Ieva Laube in association with the Swiss-based designer duo – Kristofers Reidzāns and Alex di Giuseppe.
