We are a playful engagement platform inviting people to strike up interesting, surprising and often funny conversations with familiar street objects (e.g. lamp posts, bins, post boxes etc) using text messages or Facebook Messenger, encouraging people to look at the city with fresh eyes and see it as a playground.How It Works
Look out for a street object.
Send a text in this format: “Hello” + Object Name + #Code e.g. “Hello Bin #B6291”..
You’ll soon get a reply. Answer the object’s questions and learn what other people have to say.
Hello Lamp Post was the winner of the inaugural 2013 Playable City Award, launched by Watershed and a network of organisations exemplifying Bristol's strength in Creative Technologies.
