Free To Play Event: Parkour and the UN Right to Play Charter
This evening, Tuesday 3rd July, Dan will be giving a presenting and participating in a panel discussion for the London Festival of Architecture's Article 31.1 event focussed around the UN's universal right to play charter, entitled Free To Play.
Tonight's event features a film screening of a couple of films, including one from Parkour Generations, and talk exploring the relationship between freedom and play in the city featuring a panel of players, activists and academics including:
– Urban theorist Iain Borden
– HUCK contributor and activist Olly Zanetti
– Freerunner & co-founder of Parkour UK and Parkour Generations Dan Edwardes
– Playlink founder & author of Play at School & Play as Culture Bernard Spiegal
The event is one in a series going on over the Summer for the LFA, with parkour being an obvious and relevant choice to have a voice on the topic. You can buy a ticket for the event, which is happening in East London, near Old Street, HERE.
