Tagwagon launches!!!

What better way to launch our consultation wagon than at an event aimed at finding out what it means to be a British Bangladeshi.

We launched our Tagwagon at the celebration ‘Promoting British Muslims’ gala dinner at the Ecology Pavilion in Mile End, Tower Hamlets. 6 Delegates shared their experiences of their trip to Bangladesh over a fantastic evening. Residents of Tower Hamlets were entertained by their tales and experiences, even the groups of young people sat still for a couple of hours!

We asked the delegates to jump into the Tagwagon and share their experiences and ideas of how Bangladesh and Britain can learn from each other and what it means to be British and Bangladeshi.

The young people were not shy about giving us their ideas too as they scrawled their thoughts and opinions all over the interactive bodywork.

The launch was a great success, even if the weather did try to dampen it a little. The Tagwagon has proved itself to be a fantastic consultation tool, especially with young people. Keep an eye out for it as we run a summer full of workshops.

Doodling on the wagon

Tagwagon livened up the launch of Doodle Bar last week. Guests got stuck right in, unleashing their creativity all over the wagon. We’re looking to partner with the team at Doodle Bar to run workshops where young people can express themselves over the wagon, onto the floor and up the walls! It would be a great partnership and true to the spirit of Tagwagon. Watch this space…

Consultation with Tagwagon

Young people are encouraged to express their views on the outside of the Tagwagon using chalk on its special blackboard exterior:

Inside the Tagwagon there is a video diary room, young people are filmed with their responses to each question specific to the consultation, this is a fun and exciting way enabling them to express their views and opinions.

Trip to Carlise to purchase the Tagwagon

It’s been a brilliant two weeks – the Tagwagon is up and running and there’s a big buzz in the Bold Creative studio as we set up for the first few workshops.

Greg (our Creative Director) and myself spent 3 hours negotiating price for the ’64 VW split screen bus in a cold car park in Carlisle. Our silky smooth London media patter was lost on the Scotsman who settled for £200 off the advertised price. We didn’t really have a choice as the paint job was booked in two days time and the first workshop for less than a week.

The journey home was eventful!

Next stage was the spray job and some fixes on the body work – our senior designer Becca Wiseman took on the relay driving the Wagon to Tilbury. She looked pretty confident for a 22 year old driving a 44 year old bus – it turns out she races 80 year old Bugattis at the weekends!

Greg mocked up some colour options for me and left on holiday, so the final decision was down to me. After discussing the finer details of blackboard paints with ICI I went for cream gloss over matt black, the idea is that young people can write with chalk on the black and with whiteboard markers on the cream.

Before and After:

Our Tagwagon now has a permanent home thanks to the kind people at the Classic Car Club http://www.classiccarclub.co.uk
