Activator Day

A space for play streets activators to come together to learn, share stories and feel valued as an integral part of the Playing Out movement

A small child is chalking on a street, the words Children Playing are written on the street surface and behind the child are some mini toy traffic cones

Are you passionate about children’s right to play out in the streets where they live?

Would you like to get more involved and change things for children? Would you like to be part of the growing movement and meet other street play enthusiasts? Have you set up a group to promote street play in your area, or are you thinking about it?
If you’re a parent, resident, community worker or activist interested in street play, come and join us at the 8th in-person Playing Out Activator Day at Windmill Hill City Farm in Bristol on Saturday 14th October 2023.

As well as an opportunity to meet other activators, the day will be a chance to come together to hear valuable insights and stories to support and inspire. We want you to leave feeling encouraged, valued – and hopefully a little bit playful!
