Play at Work?
This week, the Spirit & Place Festival team explored the benefits of infusing "play" into the workplace. We scoured the internet, dug into scholarly articles, participated in real-time conversations (#play #work) on Twitter and reached out to our Facebook fans for their unique perspective. We were surprised to see the amount of research that has been conducted in this area and were pleased to learn that the amalgamation of play and work can indeed infuse creativity and boost employee morale. However, what was even more interesting was to learn how forward-thinking and innovative companies are embracing this concept as part of their corporate strategy. From transitioning to collaborative workspaces to building gyms and slides, these companies are re-inventing Play at Work.
Check out this article and our blog for more information on Play at Work.

Our City Under the Radar:
Neighborhoods on the Edge
MARCH 28, 7-9 PM
Arthur M. Glick JCC
6701 Hoover Rd., Indianapolis
With an estimated 12,000 abandoned homes in Indianapolis alone, the decisions we make today will have profound effects on the future of our city. Do we demolish them? Repurpose them? Sell them for a token price? Turn them into playgrounds or green spaces? The JCC invites the public to this IndyTalks event to promote civil discourse about the future of our city.
Spirit & Place Festival is one of many IndyTalks partners.
