What is Play Ground?
For four days this July, artists, creatives and practitioners have been invited to experiment within the space and develop their practice in potentially new and varied directions through collaboration and artist-led activity. From 13-16 July, John Hansard Gallery will be a test space for new ideas as a group of artists come together to consider the question ‘How can play help us to explore individual and collaborative practice?’
Invitation to Open House
On Saturday 16 July, we invite you to join us as we open the gallery for you to investigate the results of this four day experimental project Play Ground. From 2-6pm you will be able to meet the artists, explore the space, experience artist led-sessions, and be part of the evolving discussion.
Following this from 6-8pm there will be a chance to share a drink together, alongside screenings of short artist films based around the concept of ‘Play’. This includes PLAYAWAY, a film about Somerstown Adventure Playground, Portsmouth and Somerville Adventure Playground, London (a project by Delta Arts).
Keep an eye on the Facebook event for up to date information on the day.
All are welcome to drop in on the day – open house!
Participating artists include: Letty Clarke, Jonathan Kelham, Alys Scott-Hawkins, Tina Lane, Bevis Fenner, Eloise Rose, Debbie Lee, Dave Hubble, Jill Laudet, Bettina Fung, Deborah Gearing, Savinder Bual, Ana Cozendey and Maja Hill.
