The Playable City Tokyo Residency 2018 was an opportunity to collaboratively research and develop playful ideas at the intersection of art, technology, society that innovate around public space in Tokyo.
Building on the work of an ongoing Playable City Tokyo programme, the Playable City Tokyo Residency supported, inspired and challenged participants to develop playful interventions using creative technology to respond to public space in and around central Tokyo.
The Playable City Tokyo Residency was awarded to Sophie Sampson and Thomas Metcalfe. The first half of the residency took part in June. Both Tom and Sophie wrote about their experience in Tokyo for the British Council in Japan.
The second half of the residency took place in Tokyo in September. It involved public play testing in Tokyo and a presentation workshop at the Making the City Playable Conference 2018 on September 28. Read more about the residency in our most recent blogpost.
