Fairy Water: mind maps


We ran a small mind map workshop with some villagers. While talking to them and doing the mind map, it was obvious that there was a main road that connected the different villages together (in most of the drawings, this road was in the middle). Fairy Water Village and the market is usually at the centre of the drawing. Then following that there is a branch down south to reach the Guest House. When further questioned, it was interesting to find out that for them, the centre of the village was the market area, not the Guest House. If we are to inject public programmes into the Guest House, a kindergarten for example, how do we make sure that the Guest House is not so out of the way that people will not actually come to use it? How do we then attract people to go out of their way to use the building?
