Double Feature: 1. Jennifer Aksu, Invisible Playground; 2. Lutz Henke, Visit Berlin
10. June 2021 @ 19:00 — 21:00 CEST
Jennifer graduated in Urban Culture, Society and Space and co-founded invisible playground, a network for playful public spaces. The last 12 years she has been working at the intersection of urban space, art and transformation. Jennifer consults, accompanies and empowers people and organisations from the arts, culture and city councils in times of transformation: together with them she works on civic participation, placemaking, value oriented networking, playful learning and digital competencies. Jennifer focuses on co-creation and impact orientation. Her methods are rooted in game and experience design, user orientation and strategic impact investigation. This is still very new but at the same time rewarding for city making spheres—provably.
