PLAY Hot air in bloom

Time: 21.00

Place: city center, Frankfurt am Main

Entry: participation by chance


City walk and questionnaire.

Event “Hot air in Bloom” is a guerilla-style questionnaire led by PLAY platform fellows through the streets at the very center of Frankfurt city. This one of very first PLAY events aims to grasp the idea of play - it asks what does “play-element” mean to Frankfurt citizens. Is “play” for the city something like a hot air for the balloon? Is “play” for society something like a hot breeze letting flowers bloom? Or perhaps “play” is too revolutionary and it means to smash the stage set like in a music video clip “in bloom”?

On upcoming Friday evening PLAY platform fellows will ask those and many more questions about “play-element” and “playfulness” to passers-by - be ready and stop to play with us for several minutes!
