the future of play

Tags: , , ,

November 25-26 there’s a research symposium Experience DesignThe Future of Play at Konstfack. Play, as Dr. David Elkind, the noted child psychologist, observed, is the answer to the question, ‘How does anything new come about?’Play gives rise to new knowledge, skills, ways of interacting and forms of expression. In this symposium, the Experience Design Group (EDG) at Konstfack (University College of the Arts, Craft and Design) seeks to envision the future of play within research, design and industry, seeking new knowledge about play and through play for the benefit of designers, researchers, leaders and critical thinkers.
Speakers include: Jenny Althoff, Rolf Hughes, Åsa Johannison, Ronald Jones, Peter Majanen, Oskar Jonsson, Anna Lampel, Helena Tobiasson, Gerard de Zeeuw.
The language is English and the symposium takes place at the Mandelgren lecture hall at Konstfack Thursday 25 Nov 16.00-18.30 and at the Svarta havet lecture hall Friday 26 Nov 09.00-17.00, also at Konstfack.
