The fun theory goes like this: ‘something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better.’ So how can we apply this to places? Easy – make them fun places to be, where people want to shop, interact and enjoy.
We’ve been searching for the great examples of adding a little fun and play into public spaces and we’ve found some, then added them to a powerpoint so you can present the idea to your committees and get some buy in and what should be very simple interventions to make your area more fun! We hope you find it inspiring…
Need it in another format? No problems, let us know.
NEED MORE HELP TO GET SOMETHING FUN HAPPENING IN YOUR AREA? We are offering a free consultation and help with implementation* of a fun project to a worthy precinct – just answer the question, Why do you need to play? ENTER NOW at firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries close Sunday 9 December!
One winning answer, about what makes their place a great candidate for play in a public space, will receive a needs assessment, play design and implementation plan from us, and we will be showcasing your activity on our website through video and images. Oh, and you need to be ready to start playing this year.
*Totally free, but if you’re outside of Melbourne, there may be some travel costs involved, let’s talk about it!
