Following on from last year’s Making the City Playable Conference, Watershed has produced a strand of the Festival of the Future City inviting thinkers, makers and planners from across the world to explore the role of play in future cities.
Playable City is a framework to think differently about the city by creating shared experiences through play. Visible, democratic, surprising, and inclusive, it re-uses the city infrastructure to create connections – person-to-person, person-to-city. By transforming city spaces in to places of unexpected interaction, the Playable City helps develop conversations about the changes needed in our cities of the future. Since its launch in Bristol, there are now Playable City initiatives in Recife, Brazil, Tokyo, and a developing project in Lagos. The Playable City Day, which takes place on 19 November, is supported by British Council. We invite you to join us to share, think and play together.
Ticket price is £15.00 full and £12.00 concessions.
