Paradigm of Play

Lets Play Cork has been working for two years to change the culture, attitudes and opportunities to play in our city. Through the EU URBACT Playful Paradigm programme we have been learning, experimenting and implementing new ways to understand the value of play in social, educational and environmental ways in Cork City. a diverse steering group comprised of members from City Council, Heathy Cities, Sports Arts, Festivals and Community workers coordinate the implementation of the key deliverables. This is intern supported by a Play Forum, which has over 100 members drawn from the wider community including educational staff from the spectrum of Lifelong learning, arts organisations, activists and members of the public.
