TEDxNavesink: The Value of Play

TEDxNavesink: Play took place on Saturday May 10th, at the Two River Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey.

Play offered two dozen live talks and entertainments on the surprising ways that play is a positive force in our lives. Being at play is a most resourceful state. It facilitates greater openness, tolerance, creativity, generativity, generosity, and curiosity in all aspects of human endeavor. And as a consequence, it impacts business, education, innovation, public space, community, real estate values, culture, and on stage, land, sea, air, and in cyber spaces.
