About Bernard Spiegal

Bernard Spiegal is Principal of PLAYLINK not for profit and the consultancy Common Knowledge. He has significant experience in developing corporate, cross-sectoral play policies and strategies. PLAYLINK's core play policy and strategy forms the basis of many locally-developed policies and strategies.

Bernard is particularly interested in the creation of spaces - temporal and physical - within which people of all ages can take control of their own time and activities. Hence his interest in play and culture as 'ways of life'.

He devised the Risk Assessment workshop for play providers.

He is the author of Play as Culture, Play at School, articles in specialist press and web sites. A theme running through all his work is the need to understand and value risk: life stops still without it.
