Future Postal Service

Maybe ( ) Together

Part game.
Part intervention.
One big game of post.

Drop into a buzz 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 ground.
