public knitting event?

Ideas of a collaborative “knitting graffiti” event boiling in my head… I wonder if seniors would participate together with younger knitting-fans in something like this? http://bit.ly/38yxVw

I was speaking about this with Andrew, a doctoral student in Media Lab (Aalto University School of Art and Design), and I found these practices so inspiring: soft yet rebellious, they put public authorities in doubt if getting rid of them or keeping them. It is a visible form of guerrilla art, but in the same moment is so mild and sympathetic that you would feel like a brute in tearing away the knits…

I would like to create an event that would bring together people from different ages, held in a public space, hopefully outdoors during a lovely sunny summer day, helping to fill the generation gap. I just wonder if seniors would appreciate some kind of fun, lively knitting public intervention in the city environment, or they would consider it as an act of vandalism…

Your opinions?
