The Unilever Series: turbinegeneration is a project about international collaboration and exchange. Turbinegeneration helps schools from across the globe form international connections. These connections between schools are developed through an online exchange of artwork and ideas. Schools create artwork inspired by themes taken from the turbinegeneration Project Pack that are relevant to young people’s own experiences and cultures. This publication showcases a snapshot of responses from schools across the world inspired by Activity 6, ‘Mass Sculptural Actions ‘ in the 2012 – 13 Project Pack, ‘Collective Actions / Interactions to Explore Around the World‘. The Project Packs are a available to download from the ‘Resources’ section on the turbinegeneration homepage.
