At this year’s Spirit and Place Festival, people are encouraged to set aside time to remember how to play.

With socially minded games such as “A Paycheck Away,” a simulation of homelessness, and “Spirited Chase,” they’ll learn ways to engage their communities while having fun.

They’ll have the chance to witness internationally known artists perform opera, dance, comedy and theater. They’ll listen to music created with a mish-mash of machinery and find the value in getting together for a community drum circle.

More than 40 programs and events will explore the silly and the serious at the annual Spirit and Place Festival, starting Friday and lasting until Nov. 11.
