Africa Play Conference

Africa Play 2019 was a conference hosted by Unicef, the South African Department of Basic Education, and the LEGO Foundation. The conference gathered practitioners, administrators, and policymakers from across the African continent to put a tight focus on the need to prioritise play in childhood development.

I designed five playgrounds for the conference, each based on one of the LEGO Foundation’s Five Skills for Holistic Development. The conference attendees were able to construct deeper understandings of the five skills model having experienced them at the conference.
