MUSINGS, THOUGHTS, IDEAS, WORKS IN PROGRESS, WINDOWS INTO PROCESS —WE'RE ALWAYS UP TO SOMETHING
Why embracing play into adulthood and beyond can lead to happier and healthier people, relationships, and communities. Play is an elusive concept —constantly changing shape and taking new forms. The act of play is hard to define because it’s as unique as the individual.
When you think about the busiest places in your neighborhood, town, or city what colors do you see? Is it colorful, cheerful, and representative of the individuality of your community, or does it look like an exercise in finding out how many grays, browns, and beiges there are in the known universe?
Active community spaces keep us feeling connected and when people feel connected, communities can thrive. At Common Place Projects, we like to think of place as any physical environment that creates a welcoming space for people to come together, connect, and share in moments of joy and inspiration.
