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.
Based on our experiences, insights and community from the international CounterPlay festival, we are now offering 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.
We have established a national Danish play think tank with central stakeholders public institutions and private companies, from play research and play practice. It is becoming a strong platform for examining and supporting play across society and the lifespan.
