GREENSPACENYC is pleased to introduce the Play Forum/ Play City at FIGMENT NYC (June 8th) --- a collaborative project to explore how we can better integrate play into the everyday. The goal of the project is to begin conversations around how we do experience the city and how we could. What are current examples of play within urban space? What are some strategies for incorporating play into our cities through top-down and bottom-up interventions? Is play an integral element in the development of more sustainable communities and neighborhoods?
At FIGMENT, kids and adults will get a chance to map the play space of their dreams. Blank maps of Governors Island will be distributed and materials will be provided for participants to sketch/collage their ideas on the grass. All ideas will be showcased here on our online gallery! play-city.greenspacenyc.org.
Look for us near the middle of the Nolan Park section of Governors Island on Saturday, June 8th, 2013 from 12 to 5pm.
