I’m organising a street play event this Sunday on my street Bevington Close in Midsomer Norton. Although its something I have wanted to do for a while, its in conjunction with my working practice. The idea is to facilitate a play space that will be adopted by the neighbouring children. This space is there’s for those few hours and the aim is to give the kids ownership over a public space that would normally be utilised as an adult space, usually dominated by cars and the danger of cars reversing or turning in too quick.

In the run up to the street play event, I am collecting loose-parts and will buy some washable paint, chalk, tape, scissors etc.

Will keep you up to date on what happens and how the work develops as a piece for my upcoming show Ruin.
