PLAY_STREET is an OPEN international ideas competition to re-imagine the urban street as a play space. The challenge of the competition is to design or plot a set of playful and performative activities that claims the street as a public space, a PLAY space.
PLAY_STREET is an official program of the 2019 Winnipeg Design Festival and is OPEN to all designers and creatives. The entrants are invited to imagine, script and illustrate a temporary PLAY-logistics and or PLAY-gears for the STREET. The design can involve gears and apparatuses that are newly designed or repurposed, and may include simple rules and or ‘game-like’ logistics: ‘how-to-play’.
The winning entries for the PLAY_STREET competition will be built and displayed in the Cielo Raso Alley for the public to come and play!
