Our practice is built through years of making interactive performance, play interventions and embedded community engagement. Producing a game of MASSIVE BATTLESHIPS teaches you a lot about invitations, permission and participation.
Since then we’ve created play disruptions for clients across sectors in built environment, health and wellbeing and the arts to build better conversations with stakeholders.
Organisations like Arup, National Institute for Health Research Applied Research Collaboration West, Barbican, RSC, Bristol Green Capital and the University of Chester have all collaborated and benefited from our active, play based approach.
Each project starts with a unique question, or problem to solve. We use creative play and technology to engage people with ideas and open conversations.
Our aim is to widen engagement, especially with communities who’ve been overlooked. We support a take-part society, seeking out barriers to engagement and inventing playful ways to overcome them. We invite people to play with different perspectives and make complicated issues easy to understand. Active engagement empowers participants, encourages collaboration, and allows more voices to share the stage.
Play:Disrupt is part of Mufti Games Ltd, a non-profit SME that engages through play.
Play breaks down barriers and immerses people. We design surprising creations to coax the curious. Experiences that enable strangers to meet on an equal playing field, making new connections and discoveries.
We believe in a take-part society- that everyone should be involved in decision making. Our play disruptions are designed to overcome obstacles, invite people in, and enable wider access.
We collaborate with clients and communities. Positive change is best made in partnership with the people it affects. Each project is approached in a design-led way, drawing from our team of facilitators, consultants, inventors, artists, makers, designers, creative technologists, playworkers and theatre makers.
We want to support the creation of joyful neighbourhoods, healthy cities and prosperous towns. Great communities we all want to live work and play in.
