How Would You Make Your City More Playful?

February 28, 2014

After getting fantastic questions from people watching the talk, we brainstormed ideas for the next League of Creative Interventionists event. Mirando came up with the idea of building an oversized Jenga game with the community in a park; McDonnell came up with the idea to install basketball hoops around his city; and Franks currently has the idea to create a giant puzzle for everyone to put together. If you have ideas to make your community more playful, share them! Tell us how you’d brainstorm a creative play intervention for your city.
