The Playground is an interactive media art project that involves the general public.
A prototype of this work will be exhibited at Melbourne Knowledge Week 2017, where we will run a week of play, creative technologies and art activities. An interactive exhibition of The Playground will be featured in the regional City of Ararat in August 2017, and the work will be also exhibited at The Asia Culture Centre (South Korea) in late 2017.
During Melbourne Knowledge Week (1-6 May 2017) sculptural pieces will be hidden around the State Library of Victoria. You’re invited to help find them, bring them into the MKW17 Festival Hub and connect them with a large collectively constructed interactive sculpture. The sculpture will be situated in the library's Experimedia Room. To engage with this activity use #PGArt2017 or visit The Playgound Art Facebook Page.
If you want to be even more involved then come to The Playground workshops where you can play a bigger part in this media and creative technologies project. Workshops are on Tuesday 2nd May 5.30pm – 6.30pm and Saturday 6th May 4pm – 5pm. Bookings are essential - The Playground MKW17 workshop bookings.
Whether you are highly experienced or have no knowledge in this area we encourage you to be involved. This event is for seniors, university students, children (10+), and individuals who have an interest in knowledge, art, design and creative technologies.
