I recently co-concieved and facilitated a day-long event called Reverence and Play alongside Dr. Constance Fleuriot. It was part of an Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project led by Professor Ann Light of Northumbria University, called Effectiveness in Action. The study was was trying to understand the factors that motivate and sustain community action and activism. The event took place at Windmill Hill City farm and brought together a rich mix of play workers and social activists from Bristol and beyond.
You can explore the research output from Effectiveness in Action, in the form of the artists book, Everyday Disruptions.
