The
Curious Bird Project

Reviving social behaviour in public spaces

Welcome Curious Bird

Picture this:

You (a curious bird) are on the train and don’t know what to do, so you mindlessly scroll on social media. The stranger in front of you, sees the origami bird clipped on your shirt and asks:

“What’s that bird for?” 

Before you know it, you’re having one of the most interesting conversations in your life. 

And that’s when you realise that everything starts with Curiosity.

Origami bird: the vision

follow your curiosity

I have this vision of travelling to a far-off place and seeing a stranger with an origami bird clipped on their clothes.

Immediately I know that that person is curious and courageous. 

I go up to him/her and point to my own bird. 

A fascinating conversation unfolds and I realise that conversation would have probably never happened if I hadn’t followed my Curiosity.
