Reactivate the world: Wednesday 31 March 2021

Presented by Playable City Melbourne

Join Esther Anatolitis, Paul Callaghan and Elissa McMillan in a playful panel discussion about reactivating Melbourne post-pandemic.

Wednesday 31 March

>>> Book through Melbourne Design Week

>>> Watch the event video

Through an interdisciplinary conversation connecting urban play, public art, tactical urbanism, community connection and societal wellbeing, the panel asks how neighbourhoods and communities can come together to create hyperlocal urban play? Can play help us reconnect with the world after lockdown? Do we still need cities at all?

Playable City Melbourne is a project connecting music, games and fashion with public space – shaping an urban play community exploring alternate ways of being, First Peoples connection to place, and more-than-human infrastructure.
