  •     Draft  Brief  for  Playing  Out  /  Good  for  Nothing    Brief  intro  to  ‘Playing  Out’  –  what  are  we  about?    http://playingout.net/    Our  vision:  Children  across  the  UK  are  able  to  play  out  freely  and  safely  on  the  streets  where  they  live.    We  do  this  by    • Communicating  the  importance  of  street  play  widely  to  influence  cultural   attitudes  and  behaviour  • Being  a  source  of  experience-­‐based,  accessible/friendly,  high  quality  guidance   and  advice  .  Currently,  our  work  is  centred  on  ‘rolling  out’  a  tested  model  of   playing  out  sessions;  short,  afterschool  road  closures  that  follow  a  fairly   formal  procedure.    There  may  be  future  models.    • Embracing  and  communicating  the  necessity  of  Free  Play  (unstructured,  semi-­‐   or  un-­‐supervised,  children  just  doing  their  own  thing)  • Building  and  modeling  an  attitude  of  neighbourliness  .  Sharing  strategies  for   developing  neighbour  relationships,  growing  community.  • Enabling  and  inspiring  resident-­led  action    • Building  a  (UK/worldwide)  grassroots  movement  in  support  of  children’s   greater  freedom  to  play  out  • Working  with  policy-­‐makers  in  Transport,  Health,  Community,  Young  People   and  more  to  embed  all  of  the  above.      Here are three areas of work that have been on our to do list forsome time. They are listed in order of priority.        The  Network:        Aim:      Rationalise  existing  online  media  and  create  new  components  for  network  communications  to  include:    • Mailing  list  /  subscribers  network    (we  would  ask  all  Facebook  members  and   existing  email  contacts  to  join  (approx.  500  to  date)?)  Streamline  current   ‘contact  us’  page  on  website  –  take  away  form(?)  and  have  Mailchimp  and  
  •     network/Facebook  sign-­‐up  instead,  with  simple  email  address  (and  phone)   contact  details.    • Blog    (ideally  embedded  within  website)  and  syndicated  to  Facebook  (group  or   page?),  mailing  list  and  twitter.    Keep  archival  categories  really  simple.        • Simple  discussion  Forum:    Q.  What  are  the  implications  of  this  re:  moderators— what  kind  of  time  does  this  involve?      (SECURITY  is  paramount,  possible   mapping  system  so  that  interested  members  can  locate  others  in  their  area.     If  mapping  poses  security  risk,  then  don’t  do  it).    Simplicity  is  key  here.    Must   be  super  easy  to  use  and  have  explicit,  easy  to  follow  instructions.  Map  or   other  element  to  include  local  info  by  area  (council  and  other   contacts/policy  etc.).    Low  maintenance  would  be  ideal.    Wiki-­‐type,  crowd   sourced  ethos?    How  do  you  maintain  quality,  reduce  mis-­‐information?)    • Contact  and  Email  Newsletter:    design  Mailchimp  template  that  is  in  keeping   with  the  website  aesthetic  and  ‘branding’…        Guidance  Materials:    Aim:    to  improve  guidance  materials  and  increase  accessibility/ease  of  use  for  different  learning  types.  Using  the  content  of  existing  guidance  manual  and  other  materials,  create  alternative  modes  of  access.    • Guidance  videos:    Break  manual  into  series  of  short  instructive  videos.    Create   shooting  scripts/storyboard  for  these  that  have  a  personal,  warm  humour,   include  both  direct  address  to  camera  and  street-­‐level  scenarios.        • Email  guidance  sequence:    Break  manual  down  into  an  email  sequence  that   members  can  subscribe  to  and  be  ‘fed’  at  correct  intervals  throughout  their   planning.        • New  general  Playing  Out  leaflet:    to  include  four  simple  steps?    Needs  more   consideration  and  clarity  of  intent.  (Aimed  at  potential  organisers  and/or   general  public?)    • Email  ongoing  motivation  series:    For  folks  who  are  already  doing  TPSO  but   might  need  a  little  nudge  from  time  to  time?    Content  would  need  writing  but   mechanism  could  be  created?    (low  priority)  
  •      • Email  guidance  /motivation  sequence:  “Easy  and  Effortless  things”    (low   priority)        The  Shop  (pop-­up  and  online):    Aim:    To  advance  envisioning,  planning,  thinking  and  design  towards  a  pop-­‐up  style  shop  and  online  shop.    Feasibility?      • Online  shop:    Simple,  limited  stock?    To  include  books  that  align  with  the  free   play  and  neighbour/community  building  ethos,  Road  Closure  Kit,  simple,   inexpensive  but  high  quality  street  play  (and  street  reclaiming?)  related  bits   chalk,  skipping  rope,  T-­‐shirts.    Other?    • Pop-­up  Shop:    Same  as  above  only  including,  in-­‐person  advice  line,   refreshments?  Talks,  debates,  participatory  events,  workshops,  etc…  on   related  themes,  Gallery?          General  questions  and  considerations:        Which  Facebook  link  do  we  keep?    Page  or  group  or  both?    I  think  page,  and  the  forum  takes  over  for  the  group?    (AF  -­‐  yes  and  that  means  we  can  push  the  ‘liking’  a  bit  more,  so  page  becomes  more  of  a  public  face/outlet)    Aesthetic  and  language  for  all  please  keep  simple  and  personal  with  very  low-­‐key  branding.    Maintain  chalk-­‐on-­‐pavement  aesthetic.      Materials  must  not  be  slick  or  corporate!    ‘Neighbourly’  tone  is  vital.  Respect  and  gentle  humour.    Integrity,  safety  and  child  protection  are  big  considerations.    We  cannot  put  information  /materials  out  that  has  not  been  risk/benefit  assessed  and  trialed  personally  by  us.           View slide
