We are very pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for our Making the City Playable Conference 2017. Following on from the success of Playable City Day 2016 and the previous Making the City Playable Conference, we have gathered together an international mix of creatives and city change-makers to speak about their transformative work in cities from Montreal to Mexico City, Lagos to Copenhagen.

The one day programme will explore the theme of the Playable City and feature playful interventions, opportunities for networking, debate and discussion and a chance to meet Watershed’s fifteen international city change makers – joining us on Creative Producers International, a three year programme to put people and play at the heart of their future city.

Confirmed speakers include:

Miguel Sicart, Play Scholar

Pascale Daigle, Programme Director of Montreal's Quartier des Spectacles

Daniel Hirschmann, Founder of Hirsch and Mann

Erin Walsh, Head of Strategies at Future Cities Catapult

Stuart Nolan, Research Magician

Jen Stein, Watershed Professor of Design Futures at UWE

Inua Ellams, Founder of Midnight Run

We will provide BSL and live captioning to accompany our all conference speakers.
