“Ethically, an open city would of course tolerate differences and promote equality but would more specifically free people from the straitjacket of the fixed and the familiar, creating a terrain in which they could experiment and expand their experience” – Richard Sennett, Building and Dwelling

Taking this statement by Richard Sennett as a point of departure, the Irish Architecture Foundation invites you to a series of public conversations and speculations on Dublin as an ‘open city’.

Join us at the fifth in the series to talk about Play and the City with Aaron Copeland.

Aaron has worked in education, public arts and community placemaking production for over 20 years. His work has been recognised and awarded nationally as well as internationally and he is a co-founder and Creative Director of A Playful City.

Places are limited and must be booked in advance. There are five conversations in the Open Table series and each must be booked separately. Lunch will be provided.

Accessibility Information
