Making Play: adventures in creative play through contemporary art

2008-2011

Making Play has been an important part of the growth of the SLG’s education work in recent years, enabling the gallery to develop a long-term programme of involving local children and families in contemporary art. Funded by the Big Lottery's Playful Ideas fund, Making Play is inspired by the possibilities of bringing together children’s play and contemporary art practice.

The project focuses on children from three key groups: those living on Sceaux Gardens estate behind the gallery; regulars at Charlie Chaplin Adventure Playground and children looked after by Southwark Social Services. It is delivered through their collaboration with artists, curators, gallery educators, social workers, play workers, parents and carers and revolves around six artists taking up residency in a former shop unit on Sceaux Gardens Estate over a three year period. Each artist in residence runs practical workshops for children every Saturday afternoon and runs a large-scale participatory event at the end of their residency.
