What is the relationship between leadership and play? Why are skills gained through play crucial to cohesive communities? How can leaders work with play-based processes to develop engagement, interconnection and collaboration towards community sustainability and development?
The value of play as a human way of learning and connecting is hardly acknowledged, especially in a society where material productivity is so deeply entrenched with work ethics. What have we lost, and are losing as we neglect the skills and abilities gained through play? How do artists work organically and consciously through play, to create experiences that help audiences and participants to understand their value, purpose and agency?
In this session, dramaturg and educator, Charlene Rajendran will present thinking points, moderate dialogue, and suggest ways to think about play in relation to leadership. Interdisciplinary artists, Li Xie (The Lesson), Koh Hui Ling (GoLi/SCENES Forum Theatre) and Lin Shiyun (Let’s Go PLay OutSide!) will discuss their practice and lead a practical workshop that distills the principles, conditions and considerations for creating play-based approaches to community engagement. Find out more about the practitioners here.
Whether you are an arts or creative practitioner, social or community worker, educator, funder, policymaker or in management, come join us in a session where we play and understand play!
