From street art to street games, Bristol is the world’s first Playable City, known for its playful approach to public spaces, and its drive to get residents and visitors engaged with the city and its creative and cultural future. Now, in partnership with the British Council and Brazilian technology park Porto Digital, Watershed is taking this idea to Recife, in a bid to transform it into the world's second Playable City.
