Making the City Playable

Event date Event time Event location
19/10/2017 9:30 am - 5:30 pm Watershed & Pervasive Media Studio, 1 Canons Road, Harbourside, Bristol

All over the world, play is being embraced as an antidote to the anonymity of the urban environment. This one day conference will explore the theme of the Playable City and how public space, creativity and imagination combines to create unexpected interactions and a new kind of dialogue.

Watershed, Bristol, have gathered together an international mix of artists, academics, policy makers and producers to speak about their transformative work in cities from Montreal to Mexico City, Lagos to Copenhagen. They will explore the social and cultural issues that play is helping them to address, the challenges of making playful projects a reality and who feels welcome/able to access public space.

The programme will feature opportunities for networking, debate and discussion, as well as bespoke Playable City experiences in interesting locations throughout the centre of the city. These activities will be designed exclusively for delegates by the talented cohort joining us on Creative Producers International, Watershed’s new global talent development programme.
