I have a lot of questions ticking around in my mind at the moment related to my place making work in Perth, including:
- How do the people of Perth relate to the city’s public spaces?
- What sort of relationship with public space does our ‘Perth culture’ sanction?
- Are we active participants in our public spaces?
- Do we make our public spaces our own?
- What behaviours and activities are acceptable (socially sanctioned) in our city’s public spaces?
I want to experiment; to help me answer these questions.
You’re invited to join me in:
Over the next 4 weeks, 4 people will set up and play a game of twister for 1 hour once a week in a selection of public spaces in Perth’s city centre.
- 1 person spins
- 2 people play
- 1 person is the audience for the game and also the observer
We see what happens. And what we can learn to support our work to create lively community places in the city.
If you have a penchant for twister and an hour to spare over lunchtime in the next 4 weeks, drop me an email and be part of the experiment.
