Playing in Public is a neighbourhood exhibition that explores the history and future of play, and its role in shaping decisions about public space. A wide variety of artists, educators, technologists, planners, and community organizers have created works that address questions like:

How does space shape the rules of play, and how can non-traditional spaces teach us to play differently? How does play influence our interactions in public space? How has the nature of play changed in a mid/post-COVID city?

As we begin to emerge from this pandemic and look towards recovery, we can use play as a guide for reengaging with the city, and with each other.

We will play again together.

Various installations throughout the space are exhibited for a limited time anywhere from June 19 to September 26. Visit website for complete details on locations, art installations and dates displayed.
