Reactivate the World

Presented by Playable City Melbourne

A panel discussion with Esther Anatolitis, Paul Callaghan and Elissa McMillan, moderated by Troy Innocent

Through an interdisciplinary conversation connecting urban play, public art, tactical urbanism, community connection and societal wellbeing, the panel asks how neighbourhoods and communities can come together to create hyperlocal urban play? Can play help us reconnect with the world after lockdown? Do we still need cities at all?

Playable City Melbourne is an RMIT University project connecting music, games and fashion with public space – shaping an urban play community exploring alternate ways of being, First Peoples connection to place, and more-than-human infrastructure.

This program took place at The Capitol, 113 Swanston St, Melbourne.
