About this event

The workshop focuses on design for play in urban space, emphasizing how cities can be more inclusive for different groups of people and especially children. By hands-on workshops in public spaces, we aim to modify and change/add to existing structures not usually utilized for play, such as benches, fences, lights and trashcans etc. We want to create not only a better environment but also highlight questions such as “who owns the city”. In this workshop we focus on children as citizens and inhabitants in the city. By a workshop in public space we will analyze a public space and then ”hack” and change/add to existing structures. Together we will discuss, sketch and build/visualize contributions for a more playful city.
