(Play)ce Makers: Defining Spaces Through Play Meet Up

Mar 11, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

This session is an opportunity for people who are creating and advocating for a stronger sense of place within their communities to meet and discuss new and innovative ways of utilizing play methodologies to create more inclusive, equitable, healthy, and social places. Play is our natural driver as humans to discover, explore, and empathize with others. It is universal, and it can be applied as a powerful tool for bridging divides and breaking inequities within the built environment. And yet, the term play is consistently absent from significant discussions surrounding urban development, public policy, and city change. Our cities have seen a shift in usage and understanding; this is a perfect opportunity for city change-makers to come together and share, listen, and learn from one another.
