About SmartPlay

Our city holds rich stories interwoven in delightful data and strong community pride.

Our SMART City doesn’t have to constitute soulless algorithms, invisible efficiency gains and alienating technology… so, let’s play, ignite curiosity, learn and improve together as a community with SmartPlay.

SmartPlay is here to make sure that our community and local businesses are in the driving seat when it comes to shaping their own Smart City.

We’ll start by making data accessible through physical and mediated interpretations; performances, events and forms of storytelling, which make sense within Newcastle.

We’ll also be helping to demystify the ‘smart city’ concept along the way by encouraging play and experimentation of Novocastrians as a means to enhance our community life, wellbeing, intimacy and safety.
