Description

This year we celebrated joyful living with Patch Adams running his workshop Living a Life of Joy in London. Event pictures are available on https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10156529314171509.1073741836.140496616508&type=1&l=f59155ecc5.

Next year's conference,The Playing Human, is taking shape and will take place in Central London on 27-28 September 2018.

The idea for the title of this conference came from an article I read only recently on the topic of playing as adults, and my mind wandered back to an exhibition I visited in my teens at the art gallery, Louisiana, north of Copenhagen. The exhibition was called Homo Ludens - the Playing Human and was about play through time depicted in art and expression. This encouraged further inspiration through the book written in 1938 by Dutch historian and cultural theorist Johan Huizinga, “Homo Ludens”. A bit of context for those interested: www.gamestudies.org/0601/articles/rodriges

Already we have a line-up of great speakers

  • Patch Adams will return and share his special joy
  • Pady O’Connor will speak and play more
  • Robert Holden will bring happiness to us
  • Shonette Bason and her Spread the Happiness brand
  • Linda Leclerc with her Laughter Yoga and chocolate specialty (really special)
  • Merv Neal, The Laughing Man, will also be sharing his experience and Laughter Yoga
  • Leif Hansen, Spark Interaction, will share his amazing work and play
  • Jeremy Gilley, Peace One Day, to finish and close the conference on a peace note

Other speakers are waiting to be confirmed.

Until 31 May 2017 you pay only £250 for the event.
