ONE BIG GAME OF POST.
Drop into a hive of postal activity involving big questions, blue hats and random acts of kindness.
The Future Postal Service is a high energy and big thinking mail delivery game, capturing the thoughts of children and delivering them to adult’s eyes.
Like many of Maybe ( ) Together’s works, The Future Postal Service takes children’s voices into public space. Through a simple game of post, children transform an adult-dominated space into their play space.
