Let’s Play! Making Community Engagement Way More Fun


No one loves typical public meetings where the only opportunity for interaction is a quick and dirty two minutes at the microphone. But, what can we do to change that? It turns out there are dozens of techniques to make community engagement more playful, and playfulness in turn makes engagement more successful.

Join CommunityMatters for our next free conference call, we’ll hear from James Rojas of Place It! and Chris Haller of the Urban Interactive Studio.

    Interesting that you guys use conference calls. I wonder how interactive that medium is and do you ever use video? Just wondering what types of people attend too!

      We strive to make our calls informal and chatty, plus we use a google doc to take collaborative notes. So, we actually think our calls are more interactive than a lot of webinars. We usually have 100+ people on the line that come from the nonprofit and local government sectors, but many people also join us as citizen activists and from private business, education and state/fed government. Hope you'll join us sometime!
