How to combine work with play: welcome to the "work-ation"

If you think about what experientialism will mean for work, there are some great hints in James Wallman's Stuffocation. And now we are seeing some of them happen already. The future, of course, is already here.

It's organised by Spook Studio, the people behind the Happy Start Up School.
