Now it’s time to explore the central themes as they emerged through play at the recent CounterPlay Leeds festival!
What happens when CounterPlay is brought to a completely different setting in another country? CounterPlay Leeds was our first experiment with “satellite” festivals and it was a BLAST!
When you play, things change, the world changes, and you change. Now CounterPlay is changing.
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.
