We are looking forward to welcoming at the congress house in Biel

Conference «Playable Cities»

25.05.2018 - 26.05.2018, Biel

BURRI public elements explaines how public spaces can be animated by sculptures.

Play is rarely actively promoted in urban areas and is even more rarely integrated into the actual urban planning process. Yet play offers a wide range of resources, methods, processes of appropriation and atmospheric potential for change so as to radically improve cities.

The conference «Playable Cities» is an invitation for playful reflection on play and people as playful beings as well as the city as a living space. The Pro Juventute Play Festival 2018 supports the development of the role of play in urban development processes.

It deals with the following questions:

  • How can public urban areas be organized to improve play for children and adults?
  • Can play be used in the public domain as a catalyst for urban development?
  • How can play instigate participative processes of appropriation?
  • How can playgrounds become spaces for the live culture of play and encounter?
  • Can playgrounds also be challenging and playable for adults?

We look forward to your numerous appearance.

The definitive program is available here and registration is here.

The conference is trilingual (German/French/English), plenary talks will be translated.
