Playful Wolverhampton Jam and Design Sprint , Newhampton Arts Centre, Thursday, 10. October 2019

An invitation to join us to co-design Playful Wolverhampton!
In Wolverhampton, we have an abundance of ways we can work together to increase opportunities to make more playful spaces and activities in the City. We have resources, ideas, skills and knowledge.
 Our challenge is:
How might we create a fun, playful city that offers opportunities for the young and young at heart to come together in lots of different ways, spaces and places across the City? How might the everyday become more playful?
 We would like to invite you to join-in the Playful Wolverhampton Mini Design Jam on Wednesday, 9th October from 1:00 – 6:00 pm at Newhampton Arts Centre.
 We will be jamming innovative ideas that will help us create a Playful Wolverhampton. During the session we will work in teams to design creative ideas for making Wolverhampton a more playful city for everyone, everyday. Together, we will develop prototypes with a view to testing them out with people in our communities during a design sprint in the week 26th October to 3rd November. We ask that you commit to running or supporting activities to run during that week and to coming back together on Friday, 8th November to reflect on how our learning might inform our plans in creating a more Playful Wolverhampton into the future.
 We’d love to hear from you if you would like to connect with others to make brilliant things happen in our communities. We are asking that people bring some materials and a contribution to our shared meal; we will send out further details to those who have booked nearer the time.
Is this for me? If you feeling drawn to any of the following statements then the answer is yes!

I want to work with others to create an even better Wolverhampton
I am interested in how we can design playful spaces for everyone
I can commit the time needed to participate in the Jam, Design Sprint and Reflection sessions
I agree to: come without an agenda or an idea already thought out, not worry about not having the 'right' skills, be ready to try new things, have an open mind, build on other people's ideas... say YES! (rather than 'No' and 'But'), less talking and more 'doing', be willing to become an innovator, have fun, collaborate with new people - if you come along with someone you know, be willing to work with someone you don't know in the spirit of collaborating with new people!

 The Jam will be facilitated by Wolverhampton for Everyone and CoLab Dudley.
 We look forward to seeing you at the very first Playful Wolverhampton Jam!
