Play Local Topics

Reem Charif and Mohamad Hafeda

Wed 6 Aug 2014, 7pm, Free, Booking Essential

Overview

A monthly forum for anyone interested in play, art, socially engaged practice and everything in between.

Each month a guest speaker presents a topic for discussion, focusing on themes relating to the Play Local project. A crossover between training, a discussion group and a social gathering; this is an opportunity to meet other local people and share ideas amongst the group. Refreshments are provided.

In August, Reem Charif and Mohamad Hafeda from the collaborative platform Febrik return to talk about The Shop of Possibilities as a model for play. The talk is to explore a series of questions linked to play and social participation, searching for a new reading or new models for public spaces to engage in play. What does a participatory playground look like? What is the role of the environment or space in encouraging different types of play? How and where do you play now that the playground or the play room are no longer meant for you?

Reem Charif and Mohamad Hafeda founded Febrik, a not-for-profit collaborative platform for participatory art and design research projects, with a focus on the dynamics and practices of public spaces and the negotiations of right of space of previously unrepresented community groups. Febrik research social playgrounds and invented play as participatory and democratic practices that incite social dialogue and engagement. This exploration has taken place through a series of projects in refugee camps in the middle east and also through the Shop of Possibilities at the South London Gallery, all of which lead to questions about the link between play and resistance in the every day.

Free to attend and open to anyone aged 16 or over. Childcare is available on request.
