Playbox – moveable play space in Brussels

Cureghem is one of the poorest neighbourhood of Brussels, with most people living in small and overcrowded apartments which lack spaces to play and socialise. The rare public spaces that can be used to play are mostly suitable more for children aged 6 or over.

The project will help to create a safe and challenging play environment for use by younger children in the district by working with local actors to adapt the idea of the “Playbox”, which has proved successful in Brussels with older children – moveable boxes of play equipment that can be taken from place to place in a neighbourhood to hold activities.

Update on the project

Update, December 2017: The materials have been developed and are now in the first stage of testing. Read more in this blog.
