Febrik, a collaborative platform for participatory art and design research, present an exhibition which unravels the politics of the right to public space and explores relationships between invented, inherited and modified play practices.

Their work considers the potential of curious and familiar narratives of daily social play, with a particular focus, for this project, on the spatial dynamics of community groups in two different contexts: Palestinian refugee camps in Beirut and Amman, and Sceaux Gardens in Camberwell.

Through photographic documentation, texts and animations, the show also demonstrates the processes of research, design and development undertaken in the creation of The Shop of Possibilities, the SLG’s new social space for play for local residents in a retail outlet on the neighbouring Sceaux Gardens housing estate.
