Call for practice-based papers and projects: Playful Participation


Deadline: Practice-based papers must be submitted by August 7, 2015

Conjunctions: Transdisciplinary Journal of Cultural Participation aims to create a forum in which academics and practitioners can share reflections regarding the possibilities and difficulties involved in participatory practices. In this special issue we therefore seek practice-based papers and projects that report experiences with playful participation. Papers might report and document projects related to fields such as playful culture, playful learning, playful cities and playful organisations. Besides reporting on specific projects, the papers might discuss and reflect on how playfulness is utilised with or without success to motivate participation, as well as reflecting on how playful participation can be evaluated: When is playful participation successful?

Papers and projects can be in the form of 3,000-word papers or primarily visual documentation.
