Artists Idit Nathan and Helen Stratford are working with Furtherfield to create PLAY THEN NOW OR NEVER! a new playful App and map for Finsbury Park, and inviting you to help in the process.
Book now to join the artists to explore opportunities for free and creative play in Finsbury park. Walk, play and think in past, present and future spaces, in a ‘walkshop’ devised by the artists. Dice will roll, cards will solicit and props will inspire. The walkshops will inform the creation of playful prompts for PLAY THEN NOW OR NEVER! Finsbury Park’s newest and most playful digital mobile App, with its own map, that will reimagine the park and act as provocations for future park users.
The walkshops are designed to bring together people of all ages and abilities – everyone is welcome! The group will journey through the park for approximately an hour then regroup at Furtherfield Commons for a recall and share session where refreshments will be provided.
PLAY THEN NOW OR NEVER! is devised by artists Idit Nathan and Helen Stratford (Play Anywhere Now or Never!) who see play as a sophisticated yet highly accessible way to investigate ‘big’ and complex issues that relate to the way we move in and experience the world around us. Their work takes the form of site specific interventions that question and re-imagine these through the prism of play. To find out more about their work see their website.
PLAY THEN NOW OR NEVER is part of Furtherfield’s 2019 programme: Time Portals.
