Hi there and welcome to the Trust in Play Community,
We are so happy you made it here! Since we all share the same passion for Urban Games, we would like to use this space to introduce ourselves and get to know each others a bit better. Feel free to share not only information but also a short story, it could be about your best urban project, or the time you really messed up! Or you could share what inspires you in your city or a great moment of trust.
Now, we know that it can be a bit intimating so let me start:
So, hi everyone, I am Maria Saridaki, I live in Athens and I am one of the artistic directors of this project along with @sebquack. I love getting lost in the cities and organizing playful “getting lost” moments for others. You can find more about me at morethangames.gr.
I want to share with you a time of great failure and trust. As part of an urban games collective, I once tried to organize a day of urban play near Acropolis, for adults with and without disabilities and everything, but everything, went wrong! My partners in crime got sick, I was also feverish, the game props would not stick on the ground, dozens of 4 year olds were destroying everything and I was ready to just give up.
Suddenly a group of students with Cerebral Palsy dropped in and along with their facilitators, helped me organize pop up game groups, with what props were left and everyone self-organized to enjoy one another’s company. We ended up having water fights and promising we will meet each other soon, even the 4 y.olds
