Playground at Site: ‘What If?’exhibition • 01 Jul 2021 – 11 Jul 2021
The Children’s Media Conference (CMC) is bringing back Playground, its ground-breaking interactive digital art exhibition for children and families, this summer.
Running from 1 to 11 July at Site, this year’s Playground exhibition will focus on the theme of ‘What If?’.
Entry is free, but you must book a timed ticket before visiting. The ticketing process is a means for the organisation to manage capacity, so please make sure each child has their own ticket.
Children with sensory requirements can also visit during the Quiet Hour sessions on 3 and 10 July, from 11-12.
Established in 2016, the award-winning Playground is a 10-day exhibition where children can imagine, investigate, create art, and have fun. This year’s exhibition will feature the internationally acclaimed character design studio TADO and Sheffield artist Kisha Bradley, who has teamed up with Wybourn School to produce a collaborative cutting-edge Augmented Reality (AR) project for the exhibition made entirely by children.
Additionally, national and international artists at this year’s Playground include: Julian Glander, Guillamit, House House, Tj Hughes, Will Hurt, Matthew Keff, Kinetic Landscape Collective, Sas and Yosh, Studio Pointer*, and Ustwo Games.
Families will have the opportunity to use their smartphones to find animated characters, which have been dotted around various locations in Sheffield by TADO. This is a brand-new interactive commission for Playground 2021.
