Designing for Play – How to Play your Work
Wed, 8 March 2017, 6:15 PM – 8:45 PM EST
How do we play in and at work?
Can we create play in our work, as individuals and teams?
How might we help our organizations value the benefits of, and create the conditions in which play can thrive?
Our March workshop is based on Farzad Sedghipour’s Strategic Foresight & Innovation project, Play to Perform: Why Play is the Future of Work
Play is one of life’s top motivators, it is fundamentally collaborative, and we have to play in creative work. You’ll learn the science behind the importance of finding play in our work, and play to learn the concepts.
How did you once play as a child? What is your play archetype? And how can you find more play in your daily work activities?
We explore play at 3 levels: Individual, Team, and Organization. We explore how you might establish a context for collaborative play at work. What can you do in your team environment to create a space (physically and culturally) wherein you and your colleagues can get cover to take risks and get more authentic play in your work?
What barriers might you face in nurturing a more play-led culture at work? And how might you be able to overcome these barriers with your team?
Join us at the main audtiorium (190) at OCADU for this provocative exploration from an SFI graduate bringing thes practics to the market and marketplace of ideas.
