Description

Did you ever wish you could be a child again? How easy was everything back then? You could just hang out with your friends and play, explore the world around you and discover new things every day. Life was just a happy playground where you could be curious and go on constant explorations.

Now you can re-discover your inner child. Lifegarten - Play Time is an afternoon filled with fun, silliness and creativity that gets you out of your daily routine. It’s a kindergarten for adults. A space where you can be yourself again. By engaging in a playful manner you will unleash your creativity, form connections, and see things from a new perspective. Regaining your curiosity will enable you to be more innovative.

During Play Time we play games and make-believe, go on curiosity walks, do arts and crafts, tell and make up stories, make new friends, be silly and have fun. Come along and see the world with children’s eyes again.

This month the incredible play facilitator Daniel Teitelbaum will show us how to create our own games. What makes a good game? Games are lots of fun. They can also be incredibly serious. Trying to define what makes something a game can be very hard and yet it’s incredibly easy to tell if you’re currently playing one. In this workshop we will explore how to create our own games, looking at a variety of structures and schemas presented by theorists in Game design. Mostly we will play games, but hopefully you will come away some powerful tools for creative thinking.

Each Play Time session will be limited to 20 kidults, so make sure to you get your ticket in advance. We will provide you the exact venue address via email as soon as you sign up.

For more information sign up for the facebook event and check out lifegarten.com or our facebook page.

PS If there is a game you loved playing as kid and would like to play it again, bring it to Play Time and we will play it together.
