We’ve gotten so used to being surrounded by technology that we often seem to not even pay attention to its presence. This is not (just) a good thing. Maybe play can remind us what it means to be human?
CounterPlay is collaborating with the Swiss youth organisation “Pro Juventute” to run a play festival with a particular focus on play in public. It takes place on May 25 and May 26, 2018.
When hosting or participating in play events, I always aim to 1) play, 2) think about play and 3) talk about play. As part of the latter, I find it important to have a conversation about the future: where do we go from here? How do we create better conditions for play and the playful society?
