I'd like to share a success story that perfectly embodies the vision behind Wanna Gonna. On one hand, we have SEGO, the first non-profit organization to partner with us in their search for skilled volunteers, and they ended up helping us as much as we helped them, but I'll save that story for another post. SEGO is based in Fujisawa, Japan. On the other hand, we have Guillaume, a French architect living in Hong Kong.
SEGO was hosting a large-scale beach cleaning event, expecting around 300 participants. This was their most significant event since the onset of Covid-19. It also featured a free art exhibition showcasing artwork from various artists focused on ocean conservation.
To obtain the necessary permits for the event, SEGO had to provide details such as the event layout, the number and size of tents, their orientation, and more.
The timing couldn't have been better for online volunteering, as Guillaume had just returned to Hong Kong, which required him to quarantine in a business hotel for a few days. This quarantine period gave him the perfect opportunity to create the required layouts (after some exchange with SEGO).
I'll let you be the judge of the request drawing, Guillaume's output (which is literally art within art !), and the actual installation. I think this was amazing output and amazing event as I was fortunate to be there on that special day.
The initial draft:
The output from Guillaume :
And the installation of the event itself !
