Family Weekend: Public Playground

Admission Free

What are the spaces for play in your neighbourhood? Artist Albert Potrony invited children and families to come together to consider the importance of play in public space.

Drawing on a rich history of radical playgrounds, Albert Potrony has developed a kit of loose parts made from construction materials. Children and families were invited to connect, rearrange, construct and de-construct their own architectural spaces for playing and gathering in.

Inside, the education studio became a DIY print studio where families used archive material to create play manifestos and design dream playgrounds. Working together multiple prints were produced and distributed to generate discussion about play in the public realm. 

This event is programmed in parallel with the Serpentine Pavilion 2017 designed by Francis Kéré.
