Homo Ludens Ludens International Symposium


The objetive of this programme is to situate the frame context of contemporary play on one hand, and show its multiple expressions in today s activities and functions on the other. It will aim to answer questions such as: How has the notion of play changed and how does it affect today s world? How does it empower our culture through its use in the different disciplines? What hopes, changes and what dangers this playful society may bring? Could this understanding of fusion into real life help us understand contemporary society and its citizens better?

Hours: Saturday and Sunday, from 10 to 2 pm and from 3.30 to 7 pm
Registration fee: General: 20 €. Students: 10 €
