play leads to passion

passion leads to purpose

We believe that learning is happening everywhere, all of the time!

 

As Playground City, we see that the people and places of our cities are connected together, like an education ecosystem, providing rich and meaningful opportunities for learning! Our mission is to help empower folks of all ages to access this learning through playful design.

To do this, we celebrate empathy, experimentation, and imagination - challenging ourselves to understand the aspirations of our learners and co-create enriching, exciting experiences with them! 

We believe that play enables people to learn in diverse and complex ways and the challenges we will face in the 21st Century require diverse and complex solutions!

PROMOTE EDUCATION PLACEMAKING

Learning can happen anywhere! From bus stops to laundromats, we dream of ways to infuse education into everyday places and spaces. In Barbershop Talk we blended a non-violent communication curriculum with barber training set in a live barbershop environment.
