By Louise Wark When we met Louise in Singapore on our World Tour, we were a little humbled to be meeting such a wonderfully connected and passionate advocate who was looking to us for advice. Louise has been working towards a more playful life for a long time now and...
By Louise Bensen When Pop-Ups friend Louise found out that we were going to Hong Kong as part of our #PopUpsWorldTour2015, she got in touch immediately to ask us where we would be. She came to have lunch with us before our Saturday Pop-Up and stuck around to see all...
By Zan Since arriving back in the UK, things have been go go go. Morgan and I are both working towards a PhD in Playwork. But sadly, being on the road does not often lend itself to the most ideal study environment. So we’ve been studying hard in the last couple...
We are standing in a circle, facing a fire in the perishing cold. My face is hot and dry while sleet seeps through ill-considered jeans and trickles into my shoes. So it is for our End of the World Tour. On a hill, with a steel slide to one side and a view of brick...
By Zan Reaching the 6th country on this epic world tour felt a little bit like going home. I had somehow forgotten that simply going to “see my family” in Hong Kong also meant that 8 people would come and pick us up at the airport, and that tiny cousins...
By Morgan Time on the road goes faster than in other places, and our stories are running a little bit behind, but here they are for you now. We were in Singapore for only 6 days, delivering one full-day workshop and 4 pop-ups. The first 3 were in partnership with...
By ZanAt every workshop, we ask participants a question that almost always stumps them: how do you play? There’s always an awkward pause. No one makes eye contact and the whole room seems to think. Is it really that difficult to answer that question?To us, it...
By Morgan I am writing on another place, from seat 26F gazing out on the rust-red earth far below. We are somewhere in the air between Brisbane and Perth – Justine, Suzanna and myself all in a row. Our last workshop and pop-up were in a town called Robina. Whispering...
By MorganAfter Costa Rica, we headed north again for a short flying visit with Erica, Jeremiah and their son Dallas. We visited them on the US tour in 2014, and saw them present 10 days ago in Ithaca on developments since. They’ve been fighting hard against a proposed...
By Morgan Hasta Luego, Costa Rica! I am typing this on our flight from Panama City to LA, in between stops 3 and 4 of our grand World Tour. We three couldn’t have been more excited about this stop, because it allowed us to visit Carolina and tour Bellelli Educación....
By Morgan This post took a few days to write – partly because we’re officially on tour now (next stop, Costa Rica!) and partly because our last stop was a little overwhelming. Suzanna and I spent 6 hours in a rental car afterwards, discussing detail and...
By Zan To kick start our World Tour, we invited our Board of Directors to meet us in Manchester where we officially had our first stop! It was pretty low key, but it was great to tell our board members about our progress over the past year. Moreover, to hear the...
