Playable City starts conversations about the role of people and culture in future cities

We’re working to build a community – including academics, creatives, city officials, development organisations, digital technologists and citizens – who are actively exploring the implications of embedding technology within city infrastucture, and developing imaginative prototypes that use creative technologies to rethink public space.

There are lots of ways to join the conversation:

Join the Playable City Community

Our vision is to establish a global network of people making and shaping their city through playful interventions. This site will act as a home for sharing tools, ideas, projects and methodologies, to strengthen all of our work. To begin, we have created a number of resources that share some of the insights we have gained from making work in Bristol, Lagos, Recife and Tokyo. Resources include: information on how to become a playable city; suggested workshop plans; slide presentations; information about touring projects; videos; an invitation to join our Slack community; and more. To access the Resources Area log in (using the button on the main navigation bar above) or Register here to become a Playable City community member.

Host a Playable City Talk or Tour a Project

We are always open to speak at conferences about our work or tour projects. For further information, please email playablecity@watershed.co.uk

If you are interested in finding out more about Playable City to include in a research project, we can help you. To begin with, there are great resources available in our video bank that explore thinking around Playable Cities that are freely available to view.

Or, if you have a specific enquiry or have written a paper that you would like to share with the community, please email playablecity@watershed.co.uk We receive quite a lots of requests for help and aim to get back to people as quickly as possible, but please be aware that there may be a short delay in response.
