Playfuel make physical games and playful experiences for research engagement and science communication. We believe that play is not just for children: it is a unique way of engaging with the world. It puts people at the centre of action, as agents that make their own decisions, create meanings and affect the world around them. Play and games can take place anywhere and this makes them powerful tools to engage with, explore and question complex ideas.
Playfuel was founded in 2015 by Greg Foster and Jana Wendler, bringing together influences from theatre performance and urban geography. Together we worked as Associate Artists with Manchester-based game and performance creators The Larks and became part of an exciting international network of urban game makers that spans Germany, Italy, Denmark, Austria and many other countries.
Since 2018, Jana has been running Playfuel on her own as a social enterprise. She has worked with different researchers, charities and public bodies, and she enjoys collaborating with creative practitioners to creative exciting and memorable public engagement projects.
