BY BARBARA KAUCKY
@ FIT LONDON
ON JUL 24, 2014
Barbara Kaucky from Erect Architecture talks about their work with playgrounds around the London area, creating places for self direct playing and learning. They decided to create this project because children today are already suffering from the effects of physical inactivity. Therefore, they want to increase the awareness of active playing and how this could benefit the lives of the children in a long term.

Ryo Ijichi is the director of F-World, which is working on the project of building a indoor facility for the kids in Fukushima. After the March 11th disaster, most of the children are left with no way to play outside, which is unfortunately leading them towards a unhealthy life style. The indoor park will be big enough to hold skate parks, gardens, concert venues, and much more for people to enjoy.
Harnessing the Power of Play
BY MICHAEL ANOP
“Bureaucracy is not very fun, so… at first they decided to turn a blind eye towards what we were doing. [Eventually] the government’s blind eye [realized that it] liked what we were doing. The ministry of education started reaching out to us and asking ‘hey, can you help us rebuild the playgrounds at our schools’”
From PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" comes Harnessing the Power of Play by Michael Anop. Whilst volunteering in disaster-affected Tohoku communities, Anop came to realize that many parks and school playgrounds had been destroyed by the 3/11 tsunami. Because local government was simply overwhelmed by the scale of the disaster, repairing parks would take 3 to 5 years. Working together with corporate sponsors, community leaders and city halls, Playground of Hope has built 43 playground in Tohoku.

Ein Wohlfühlort für Pippi und Robinson
BY MARIA GREUSSING
@ VOL 11
ON NOV 17, 2016
Maria Greußing erzählt die Geschichte vom Abenteuerspielplatz. Ein Spielplatz für Kinder, ohne Spielzeug, ohne Erwachsene... Ein Platz zum Bauen, Basteln, Entdecken. Mit Wasser, Feuer, Dreck, Holz, mit Werkstätten, in denen BetreuerInnen - wenn nötig - zur Verfügung stehen. Ein Modell, das es schon seit 1943 (Dänemark) gibt - nur leider nicht in Vorarlberg.
"Gib Kindern Bretter und sie bauen eine Hütte. Gib Kindern eine Hütte, so machen sie Bretter draus."

Posters Today's additions to the Tumblr blog are the posters for tonight's PKN Tallinn Vol. 6 (pictured above) and for this past Saturday's PKN Williamsburg Vol. 3. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgUs9I_tBWI Video Pordenone has a few PKNs under its belt, and here's a video showing what the PKN experience is like in that city.

Performance Arcade Session 2013
We're revving up for our first PKN session of 2013 with our annualoutdoors Performance Arcade Session in collaboration with the Playground (NZ Ltd) http://theplaygroundnz.com/ The Arcade venue comprises a series of containers featuring installations, performance art, live music, and works that travel through, or occupy spaces along the stunning Wellington Waterfront. We're looking to feature our surprise presenters spot first trialled at our final session of 2012 - 5 people who volunteer on the spot to talk to images they've never seen before. This proved to be one of the highlights of the October 2012 session. Our brave presenters were all from overseas - Russia, New York, Sweden, Chile and Germany. New Zealanders were far too shy for the challenge. We definitely need to have this presentation after the beer break - not before - so more people can pluck up some 'Dutch courage' aided and abetted by the delights of the Performance Arcade bar! The PKN Welly and Playground NZ crews are crossing fingers and toes for a fine and warm evening
