Play Connectivity

Play Connectivity was originally a site in its own right. However, the time is right to bring it to Playworkings.

Therefore, this page is imagined as a launch pad for access to that small collection of Play Connectivity writings. Perhaps, now that they’re ‘in house’ and under the Playworkings banner, there will be more.

Play Connectivity was originally conceived as a collection of writing that speculated upon the (sometimes indescribable) connections that exist between us. The writing is largely academic in nature.
