Play makes life more fun and enjoyable, and playful attitudes enable us to engage in collective collaborations and act with agency in a complex, globalized world.

How can play facilitate a stronger sense of agency and become a catalyst of adaptability and change? In what ways can play inspire and encourage us to question the status quo and challenge the rules? When will our innate playfulness spark our imagination and curiosity, and will it enable us to see that the world could be transformed into something else? 

With a program more diverse than ever, you will have the opportunity to explore how to learn, work and live more playfully.

The festival builds on a firm belief in the value of cross-pollination, and in deploying a kaleidoscopic perspective on play and playfulness. We'll have contributions from research and practice, and we'll be presenting a wide range of playful formats and activities,.

Thursday, March 30th, and Friday, March 31st, are full of scheduled activities (play sessions, workshops, talks, debates, music, dance and more) with a festival dinner Thursday evening. 

Saturday, April 1st, is dedicated to our "Play Summit" unconference, which is for more loosely structured play, reflection and discussion as well as looking ahead: how can we make the world more playful together?

Early Bird ends on February 20th!
