NoPro Podcast Episode 152 — The Secret of Play w/Olivia Hamilton

There’s something magical going on in Downtown Los Angeles. Something simple, and oh-so-needed in this day and age.
It’s called The Silent Play Experiment, and it is exactly what it says on the tin. Host Noah Nelson sits down with its co-creator Olivia Hamilton to talk about the experience, the company that gave birth to it, and the road to embracing play.

Interview on The Frame: Olivia Hamilton, founder of the PLAY organization.

A NOVEL WAY TO ACCESS YOUR INNER CHILD

The PLAY organization was founded by economist-turned actress Olivia Hamilton in 2013 with the mission of helping people tap into their creative, playful selves. Hamilton found that providing space for people to access their inner children in a judgment-free way has immense personal and professional benefits. Her newest experiment is “Silent Play,” a guided, 90-minute play experience that incorporates crafts, movement, and imaginative games – without any talking. It happens Saturday nights in Downtown Los Angeles.
