The development of Jakarta’s urban planning and the development of game technology has had an impact on changing the games for small children. The number of new types of games has resulted in reduced social and physical interaction between young children, this is supported by the very lack of playgrounds in Jakarta.
Each individual is actually able to take an important role in influencing the development and shape of a city. As public spaces continue to decrease and technology advances, the city of Jakarta reduces social and physical interactions in children’s games. This workshop redesigns the previous type or means of playing through the development of the current form of the game, making them have the initiative and creativity to continue to develop it again into other games.
This workshop will discuss various aspects of designing a playground, by redesigning the previous type or means of playing with the development of the current type of game. And ruangrupa invited artists from Jakarta and Mexico City.
