Our final PLAY pop-up of the summer will take place at  Whitecross Street Party on Saturday 11th September. Artists  Kirsty Reynolds and Jess Sanders will be working with local families to build Tee Pee Town - a new imaginary world based around play, connections and alternative forms of journeying.

Together, families will construct Tee Pee dens to explore new ways of creating shelter. The Tee Pees will be collectively built and painted using brushes and mark-making tools, creating colourful and playful structures that emphasise community building. There will be a mapping station to map out the new worlds and chalk will be on hand to create playful journeys throughout the space. There will also be a banner and bunting station to help share messages and symbols for the new world plus a mobile making station to create hanging sculptures that can sit within the new playful den spaces.

The event is completely free. Check out the website for more info.
