Design Meets Play 2017

International Conference

The Point Village, Dublin

Some of the world's most exciting thinkers and creatives in an immersive day of talks, workshops & walkshops. 

 

Playing our part in designing interventions for Dublin. 

 

Exploring the possibilities of play to transform our cities for all. 

 

Design Meets Play international conference which was held in October 2017. On the day discussion flowed, ideas were created and play was had. The venue in all its playful glory provided a great backdrop and allowed our guests to really understand what A Playful City is all about: making Dublin synonymous with PLAY!

With kind support from Bank of Ireland, KLM Airlines & Generator Hostels

"It was excellently executed and provided its audience, especially me, with moments of clarity, familiarity and hope for the play, imagination and creativity of the children of the future."
