Interview with Petra Stocker, Pro Juventute, about the Pro Juventute Play Festival 2018, which takes place in Biel, Switzerland, on May 25th and 26th.
While a funambulist and a player knows that any state of equilibrium can only ever be momentary, a proper citizen in 2018 is taught to believe that if only the right systems, models and rules are applied and followed, no balancing is required.
My dear friend, Bernie DeKoven, is now at rest, but I’m sure he continues merrily down that playful path of his. While I’m saddened by his departure, it makes me smile to think of him and his incredible legacy.

We think playful people are better equipped to live good lives together in this messy, chaotic world
Work with us:
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.
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.
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.
