Reactivate the World

Exploring what it means to restart and reimagine Melbourne’s public spaces post-pandemic.

Join Esther Anatolitis, Paul Callaghan and Elissa McMillan in exploring what it means to restart and reimagine Melbourne post-pandemic. Through an interdisciplinary conversation connection urban play, public art, tactical urbanism, community connection and societal wellbeing we ask how neighbourhoods and communities can come together to create hyperlocal urban play? Can play help us reconnect with the world after lockdown? Do we still need cities at all? Hosted by Playable City Melbourne, a project connecting music, games and fashion with public space – shaping an urban play community exploring alternate ways of being, First Peoples connection to place, and more-than-human infrastructure.
