Charlie Chaplin

During the residency I explored the question "What Is Play?" directing this question to children and staff at the playground, and gathering people's recollections of their first memory of play.

Later, at the South London Gallery, a discussion took place amongst education staff, playworkers, and artists working with young people at a nearby housing estate, and at the Adventure Playground. The event opened with a game of football being played in the gallery between all participants.

During the residency I asked children to write short stories and a selection of these featured as an edition of A3 - a monthly publication which I produce.
