Mapping Play
Wed 29 Jan 16.00-17.00
FREE Booking essential

In this workshop, join Alison Stenning for a series of playful mapping exercises, encouraging reflection on spaces of play in the past and present. Participants are invited to draw from their sensory memories of childhood play, using this as a spring board to consider how play might animate our environments and facilitate important relationships on, and with, our streets.

A Playful Protest!
Tue 18 Feb 10.00-18.00
FREE Drop-in

Families are invited to join us for a day of Playful Protest; we'll be taking lines for walks, building forts, balancing on walls, and wiggling on our bellies. Through a series of artist led and self-led activities, we'll be exploring what happens when we play, all day. Be prepared to make your own rules, take risks, question power relationships and above all, have a great time!

Programmed as part of MAPS Festival.

Many of the Playing Up programme events will be documented and available to watch on balticplus.uk
