OUR Play, OUR Journey, OUR Generation

Archie Bear shares the importance of play for children and young people, and the story of PlayBoard’s creation.

Video Details:

PlayBoard’s OUR Generation team is delighted to present our new animation. Produced by Ardmore, the animation has been created to showcase PlayBoard’s work as a part of the wider OUR Generation project and is a part of documenting the legacy of our work over the past three years.

In the animation, the viewer follows Archie Bear as he explains how important play is for children and adults, and how it can help build resilience and bridge divisions. It tells the story of how PlayBoard was founded to promote play at a time of conflict in Northern Ireland and how PlayBoard’s Spaces to Be programme, part of the OUR Generation project, has sought to address the impact of the conflict through play.

OUR Generation is supported by the EU’s PEACE IV programme, managed by SEUPB.
