CounterPlay '16

Free - DKK 2,000.00


Apr 14 2016 09:30 - Apr 16 2016 16:00


We are concerned that people don't have enough opportunities to be playful, and that this will negatively impact everything from quality of life and work to society as a whole.

We propose a different way of life, a whole different paradigm: The Play Paradigm!

At CounterPlay ’16 we're exploring “play when it’s difficult” in order to better understand and overcome the numerous challenges that risk making all of us less playful. Under this headline, we are developing a number of themes, that revolve around four central questions:

  • What is play?
  • Why is play important?
  • When is play difficult?
  • How do we create opportunities to play?

With these questions, we'll be approaching play from numerous angles that cover all of society; living, learning and working. 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 for formats and activities, all with a focus on interactivity and playfulness.

Come! Let's make the world more playful together!

Note on EAN:

EAN is a bit tricky, as it involves several manual processes and can't be handled by automated systems. If you want to pay via EAN, select the EAN ticket option. The price is the same as a regular ticket. Fill out all the boxes, and you will receive an invoice at a later point. The ticket you receive from Billetto is your valid ticket to the festival.
