Playscapes goes to MoMA!

Dear readers,

I’m pleased to let you know that Playscapes will be participating in “The Child in the City of Play”, a half-day symposium exploring the impact of play in urban environments on childhood development, in conjunction with MoMA’s exhibition Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000.  

The Playscapes image feed–nearly five years and 500 posts highlighting great spaces for play–will be serving as an inspirational backdrop for the day!  This is a great credit  to those of you who are designing and making innovative playgrounds that I can feature, sending me links to new playscapes you’ve found, and carrying the weight of the local design conversation, in your own communities, to make better spaces for play.  This is your success. Thanks for making Playscapes the most widely read play design site on the web, and enabling this MoMA moment!

I’ll be at the symposium and would love to meet you and talk playgrounds:

Friday, October 19, 2012, 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. 
Theater 3 (The Celeste Bartos Theater), mezzanine,
The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building

The event is ticketed, with limited seating, so do buy your ticket early.

Okay, now a confession: even though I am pretty well-traveled, my time in New York City consists of frustrating transits between JFK and LaGuardia and short hotel stays between connecting flights on to somewhere else.  I’ve never spent any significant time in your fair city, and I’m really looking forward to it.  Suggestions and playground tours welcome! Leave a comment or email me directly.

See you on the playground,

P.S. If you’re in the area, don’t miss my friends from Pop-Up Adventure Play, who will be at MoMA TOMORROW Friday, August 10, at 11 am.

    Bravo Paige, well deserved recognition. You come up with the greatest stuff. Will we get to read about the presentation in Playscapes or see it on slideshare?
