‘Where We Play’ was an exhibition that explored the definition of ‘Play’ through what and where people play, and investigated how an ever-changing local environment plays a major part in how people play. The exhibition was derived from a variety of cross generational workshops culminating in structures, drawings, comments and a film. It featured both historical and contemporary visuals of where children can (and can’t) play. From hopscotch, skipping and leapfrog to parkour, skateboarding and wheelies, to re-imagining landscapes of abandoned odds and sods.
Please use the link to view the film and download the resource pack, which is suitable for a wide range of age or cross generational groups, if you would like to carry out your own workshop related to play.
The exhibition took place at The Lighthouse between 17 September 2010 and 15 January 2011.
