Set in the context of Central Park in New York City, The Ultimate Block Party forged a partnership between non-profit organizations and large corporations to demonstrate how free play and playful learning build skills central to the workplace of tomorrow. Families with children from 2 to 12 were able to visit a number of stations that combined playful activities and mini-master classes with some of New York’s best architects, musicians, artists, CEOs and engineers.
