Breaking Down Barriers

Breaking Down Barriers


An exploration of the different barriers we face in our everyday lives and how we can break through them.

Our final prototype, IDKloth, can be themed for use in cafes, organisations and schools to provide a safe and non-judgemental environment for people to talk/draw/write about anything they are unsure of.

We hope that this tool will create discussions for people to move forward and become more confident by their own means, without the need for a facilitator/person of authority.
