recife: playable city

Recife: The Playable City is an initiative that brings together creative practitioners from Pernambuco (Brazil) and the UK, to exchange ideas and develop new works that respond to the theme of The Playable City. It is produced by Watershed and run in collaboration with Brazilian Technology Park Porto Digital and the British Council.

Beginning in January 2014, Recife: The Playable City enabled a select group of artists, producers and technologists to participate in a creative lab process spanning Bristol and Recife. Working together, they developed new ideas that use art and technology to engage and inspire audiences, demonstrating how playful experiences can empower citizens and tackle the challenges our future cities face. The programme culminated in a public showcase of ideas in Recife in April 2014, in which Recife officially became the world’s second Playable City.

This brand new initiative is part of the British Council’s Transform programme and is supported by Arts Council England.
