Inspiration Wagon

Where do you want to go?


The idea of the Inspiration Wagon came from 'being out of your depth' or 'in a bubble'. A bit like mobile libraries, the Wagon would rove the streets meeting the needs of the people for information and activities. There would be a trade - users would acquire new skills but also have to offer something - forcing them out of their bubble. We took an early proto-type on the streets (we dressed as a bus) and asked people what they wanted from the Wagon and also what they could offer.

They wanted: life skills and coaching (e.g. how to manage your money, tax, how to cook), people skills, maps and directions, Info on rights and benefits, local travel info, careers info, FE and HE courses, road safety, start up advice, crafting and photography sessions, maths tutoring, languages, web development, coding and so on.

The Wagon could also offer free newspapers and journals and a coffee and snacks service.
