Open for Play London, September 19-23, 2012

I’ll be back in London in September to participate in the inaugural event of Open for Play, a project of Alex Gilliam of publicworkshopTim Gill of rethinkingchildhood and myself to bring a focus on play design to existing festivals of art, architecture and design around the world.

We’re starting with Open House London, and I’d love to see you at any of the events:  a Wednesday evening discussion about play design with me, Tim, Olympic Park playground designer Jennette Emery-Wallis, and  public space coordinator Liz Kessler, or three four weekend playground walks and tours of innovative London playscapes.

Full information is at the Open for Play website, do RSVP for the discussion event so that we can give a count to our hosts, Land Use Consultants.  For the walks and tours, just show up!

Hope to see you there…and if you’re interested in bringing a focus on play to a design event in your community, just get in touch!

    Hello Arcady,

    Unfortunately I won't be able to attend but I posted the event on linked-in in the group 'Public Playground'. This group may be of interest to you in the future, to spread the news about your very inspiring blog and other activities.
