Campbell Works and Playable Communities

Campbell Works will present a workshop for the: 

Playable Communities: Priorities for a New Decade Conference

23 March 2010, British Museum, London.

Organised by Play England the conference will celebrate the achievements of the Big Lottery Fund’s Children’s Play initiative. It will share learning for the future, including the impact that investing in play can have on a range of outcomes for children and families. We will hear how partnership working can embed planning for play within local decision-making and put play at the heart of child-friendly communities.

Following the success and impact of Campbell Works involvement in recent public realm initiatives, and their experimental approaches to play provision, the workshop will focus in particular on strategies for play provision within the wider public realm, including the benefits of community partnerships and the involvement of artists as a key component from the initial concept meetings to final delivery.

Speakers Include:

Play England Director Adrian Voce
Secretary of State for Children, Ed Balls
Paul Williamson,  Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea,
Dr Tony Kendle, Foundation Director from the Eden Project, 

Chair: Jenni Murray
