Putting people and play at the heart of the future city
The British Council and the Watershed sought two UK-based creative professionals to participate in a two-stage Playable City Tokyo Residency in June and September 2018 through a public open call that ran between April and May 2018. Below is the original information for the open call (this opportunity has now closed).
The Playable City Tokyo Residency is an opportunity to collaboratively research and develop playful ideas at the intersection of art, technology, society that innovate around public space in Tokyo. We are offering two places for creative people from any discipline who believe we can start a new kind of city conversation through play.
Building on the work of an ongoing Playable City Tokyo programme, the Playable City Tokyo Residency 2018 will support, inspire and challenge participants to develop playful interventions using creative technology to respond to public space in and around central Tokyo.
Playable City Tokyo 2018 is organised by the British Council and JKD Collective Inc., produced by Watershed and supported by Rhizomatiks. It is a Tokyo Tokyo Festival Grant Program and is supported by Arts Council Tokyo, Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture.
