Tine will present her research at the Playful Cities panel and show Catch Me Now in Edinburgh at Summerhall (Main Hall) on Saturday 26 March 2016.
In the past play was rarely thought of as an activity for adults, however this is changing as science reveals how important it is for our minds. Pervasive Media Studio Producer Verity McIntosh will discuss the annual Playable City Award and will be joined by Dr Amanda Seed, lecturer in psychology and neuroscience and Dr Tine Bech, play researcher and artist, in an event hosted by Francesca Perry, social and community editor for Guardian Cities.
