Clay Mazing of Emergency Circus continues his travels (chronicled as part of our “Field Trip” series) by chronicling a stop at the CounterPlay conference in Aarhus, Denmark, in which examines the concepts and values of play in a range of settings.
“We’re trying to build a community of playful people from around the world to figure out what does it mean to be playful and why do we think that it’s beneficial for people in all kinds of situations — also in very, very difficult and hard situations — to be allowed to be playful,” said festival organizer Mathias Poulson.
As part of the video travelogue, Clay Mazing (who gave the conference’s keynote speech), interviewed members of other organizations, including A Secret Club and The Future Makers.
Come back soon for a full video of that keynote speech.
