Future Museums: Play and Design at the V&A

Play is a mode of creative problem-solving, imagination and experimentation that helps us understand how we can impact the world and affect change. How can cultural institutions become seriously play filled spaces? How can we activate collections, design spaces and programme content that will empower our audiences through the power of play across generations and in a fast-changing and uncertain world?

Kicking off with award-winning and field-defining psychologist Kathy Hirsh-Pasek from Philadelphia, this conference brings together play futurists, policy makers, designers, museum professionals and play practitioners to share diverse perspectives and innovative ideas.
