CALL FOR IDEAS:
Games that we can play with our neighbors between balconies, rooftops or even windows!
The social distancing measures and the limited access to public spaces because of the Covid-19 pandemic have given the opportunity to urbanites all over the world to re-invent their outdoor spaces and exploit them more creatively…We’ve seen videos of people singing, playing bingo, working out on balconies and rooftops…
I am currently creating a catalogue of games we can play from our balconies/rooftops/windows that
respect social distancing : no touching / keep 2m distance
can be played without leaving our flat/building
can use simple materials and objects that we have at home
respect the privacy of neighbors (noise, visibility)
do not risk the safety of players
are performative, educational, fun, synchronous-asynchronous, etc…Could be any playful experience that can be re-adjusted for this specific urban context!
Any kind of reference is interesting and inspiring… (could be games, texts, illustrations, movies…)
