Roleplaying for playgrounds at the RISE Africa 2021 Action Festival!
We are excited to invite you to join our session during the RISE Africa 2021 Action Festival to create an imaginary playground with us!
The Rise Africa Action Festival is a week of online sessions organized by ICLEI Africa around various intersecting themes. It is a collaborative platform for African actors and enthusiasts engaged in the urban space to exchange ideas and promising practices, with the vision to inspire and enable impactful and inventive action for sustainable, resilient African cities.
AAMatters together with IRIX architects are hosting one of these sessions in which participants are invited to develop an imaginary playground in Zanzibar and discuss key themes such as design tools, methods and materials through a fun role play activity. This session will not only explore new ideas, but will also bring to attention issues and challenges that we might encounter during our upcoming project launch.
We want to enable community actors to transform their surroundings and to become an essential part of making the city. Currently playgrounds are either non-existing or pre-fabricated, gender biased and uninviting. We believe children need safe spaces to play, an environment that stimulates curiosity, develop skills and express creativity.
