Play Local Symposium

Sat 22 Mar 2014, 2pm, From £3

Overview

This third symposium linked to the Play Local programme considered recent interventions by artists, children and young people in local public space and examined the values that underpin designed environments.

- Artist Laura Carle presented her recent work exploring the (mis)uses of designated play spaces with children living on four local housing estates.

- Liza Fior, one of the four founding members of the architecture/art practice, Muf, discussed their practice which has developed a reputation for pioneering projects that address the social, spatial and economic infrastructures of the public realm.

- Artist Ben Washington discussed his recent collaboration with the SLG’s young people’s forum, The Art Assassins. At the end of the symposium the group visited their new project, Arcade Peckham, which was installed in a unit on the Copeland Road Industrial Estate in Peckham. Whilst designing the new video game set in south London, The Art Assassins were able to redesign their local environment and explore their own narratives to redefine the concept of winning and losing.

Listen to audio recording of the talks from the Scripted Spaces symposium.
