Making Changes

When you play, things change, the world changes, and you change. Now CounterPlay is changing.

Designing CounterPlay

This post is an attempt to capture the essence of CounterPlay, the principles underlying the festival and the connection to play. Part of it is a description of what we have been doing since the beginning, while part of it remains more of an ideal for our future work.

Loving the Magnificent Mayhem

CounterPlay ‘17 is over, it’s been several days, and I’m only slowly catching my breath. It was a wild and crazy ride, and all the impressions still need more time to settle.

The Playful Society Prototype

Maybe you have heard us talk about the CounterPlay festival as a "prototype" of the playful society. I'd like to dive a little deeper into that idea, since it's basically the most important reason for the festival to exist. It's our BIG dream to contribute to a strong...

Work with us:

CounterPlay Festival

Since the first CounterPlay Festival in 2014, we have been aiming to turn the festival into a strong international community and an ambitious forum for exploring, supporting and spreading play. The next festival will now take place every other year, so we’ll be back in 2019, but in the meantime we’ll be experimenting with a wide range of similar events.

CounterPlay Consulting

Based on our experiences, insights and community from the international CounterPlay festival, we are now developing new formats and activities to bring play to a wider range of settings. In addition, we are also working with external partners and clients, providing solutions based on our understanding of play.

Play Think Tank

We are working on establishing a national Danish play think tank with central stakeholders from our network. It is our intention to create a strong platform for examining and supporting play across society.
