Driven by insatiable curiosity, Marcel catalyses new projects to playfully explore different topics in the fields of society, culture, and technology. As the initiator of “Happyplaces,” he investigates the dimensions and manifestations of space. The project explores how a wide variety of people create or facilitate spaces and where their boundaries lie; in turn it maps these findings and then translates them into hands-on tools that can help to create better spaces where people can find happiness.
Marcel regularly organizes and facilitates creative social events that bring people together in building shared understandings and improved realities, as he does with his work as creative director of WeMakeThe.City, the festival that makes cities better.
He also works as a creative strategist and strategic creative at Happykamping, an eclectic distributed network of thinkers and doers for a wide variety of clients, helping them with their complex challenges, and ultimately leading them to happiness.
