Let’s Play

What is play to you? Who are you when you play? Who are you because you play? How much do you play? Where do you play? With whom? Do you see work different from play? How could you play with the idea of play?

If you are drawn to these questions and you are a learning leader, welcome to the NavgatiUncoference 2022 – Let’s Play.The Navgati Unconference is an unconventional networking event with the objective of promoting learning through authentic personal sharing.

Play : A game-changer

Turn a cardboard box into a castle with dragons. To play is to imagine. Paint a picture, cut it up, jumble and reassemble it. To play is to strive. Improvise fake moustaches and goofy glasses from coir. To play is to create . Pass the ball to your friend. To play is to trust. Make blue coloured potatoes. To play is to experiment . Make a human pyramid, with 10 more people this time. To play is to challenge. Start a new game. To play is to move on.Call your colleagues to join. To play is to include.Laugh in 20 different ways. To play is to live.

Dr. Eberle says, “Play begins in anticipation and hopefully ends in poise. And in between you find surprise, pleasure, understanding and strength of mind, body, and spirit.”

This unconference is for us to change the way we think about play. It is to remind us of the transformative power of play. It is to spend a day connecting with our playful selfs. It is to spend the day with playful people. It is to explore what play has brought to our lives and how we can bring play into our lives and our work.

Welcome to Let’s Play – An unconference dedicated to purposeless fun. Become a Ms.Laughsalot or a Mr.Trickuphissleeve. Lose yourself in play. Find yourself in play. Reconnect with a simpler time, where life was about having curious explorations.

What is an unconference?

An unconference is a gathering for learning from others and building new relationships. However, it differs from a conference in that no keynote speakers are invited and no panels are arranged. No separations are made between “speakers” and “audience”. It prioritises conversations and sharing amongst all. It is more open, friendly and fun!

A number of learning leaders told us they disliked conferences because they typically involved selling, awards and meaningless card exchanges. This unconference will replace this with opportunities to network that result in relationships getting built. It is not about experts talking about successes, but all of us talking about us: who we are, how we see our roles and how we could bring more of ourselves into our roles.

Why now?

Anytime can be playtime.

The changes that we have experienced in the last year have been emotionally demanding. We have been working longer and harder to stay afloat. Many of us may have lost track of time, suffered losses and felt exhausted. It is in these time (and in all other times) that play is very valuable. It can remind us about what is really important in life.

Come, let’s play.

Who is a learning leader?

A learning leader is a person who shapes the learning of others as a sponsor, manager, designer or facilitator of learning. The person need not hold a formal role in the learning department.

What will I walk away with?

We have designed this unconference for you to take a breather from work, let your guard down and be yourself. You will look at your roles from different angles – in ways that perhaps you haven’t looked at before. We are hoping that you have insights that allow you to be a more congruent, authentic learning leader. And of course, you will go back with more friends.

How interactive will it be?

You have to be part of it to experience for yourself how engaging an online session can be. You will see us using art, stories, theatre and small group activities. And yes, all of this will be done online. Constraints inspire creativity!

How do I know if the unconference is for me?

This unconference is for you if you

Are eager for authentic sharing and learning

Like simple conversations without jargon

Value building relationships over exchanging cards

Appreciate process as much as outcome. The play is the reward
