Public Space With A Roof

Elena Simons

Elena Simons has worked as an independent Social Inventor for three years. Her company, WONDER, undertakes freelance work for NGOs and social enterprise, as well as initiating its own projects. One successful art project is the visit of a group of welfare recipients to the wealthy in their villas, bringing symbolic gifts as a gesture of thanks. On another occasion a luxury department store unknowingly sold high quality goods from the trash, after Elena and friends had put these back on the shelves with real price tags. Fun with Muslims, a political gift-book, was published last April in the Netherlands – it includes many funny adventures with Muslims and tips for readers who would also like to enjoy Muslims.
