Make Believe Leeds

On April 29th as part of the tech strand of Leeds International Festival Playful Anywhere were commissioned to put together a day of arts, tech and imagination to inspire the next generation of inventors, makers & technologists. We were delighted to bring together a wonderful range of facilitators from across the UK to create a magical environment of playful, curiousity and creativity. As with all our creative tech events we blended elements of cardboard and code to stimulate young minds, and as usual we were happy to see parents and grand parents equally engrossed.

The event was fully booked and we met over 700 people during our day at the splendid Leeds City Museum
