Making the City Playable: How We Play

Pascale Daigle, Inua Ellams, Daniel Hirschmann, Hilary O’Shaughnessy and Jen Stein

Description Details

We have seen a global movement of playful city interventions which fuse art, technology and urban innovation to engage with citizens and reclaim public space. An international group of artists, producers, academics and policy makers – including Pascale Daigle (Quartier des Spectacles Partnership), Inua Ellams (Midnight Run), Daniel Hirschmann (Hirsch and Mann), Hilary O’Shaughnessy (Watershed) and Jen Stein (University of the West of England) – share some practical insights from their work and discuss the environmental and cultural concerns they must address in very different places.

Part of Making the City Playable, a day of events exploring the theme of the Playable City and how public space, creativity and imagination combine to create unexpected interactions and a new kind of dialogue.
