We had an amazing time playing at this year's Spirit & Place Festival. From flinging pumpkins to playing a table-top game about homelessness, from exploring gender roles to laughing at comedy shows, we've had a spectacular time exploring play. We'll be continuing the play conversation on our social media platforms, even as we look ahead to next year's theme: RISK.
