Street Training is
Being aware of the effects our thoughts and behaviour have on our surroundings and making use of this knowledge.

It's all and any of the joyful, funny, poetic, challenging things people do as we move through the streets. Every one does something over and above just walking down the street with their walking-down -the -street face on, going shopping and going to work. These things slip through the cracks in most big cities but the personal playful, joyful, subversive things we do make a difference to us, to other people and to places.

Children from Golden Lane Community centre and their families will be demonstrating how to (mis)use the museum for play. How accessible is the museum for children and how ok is it to run your arm along the smooth, wide handrails, pull faces against the glass partitions and roll on the floor? Freedom to follow playful desires and push the limits of museum behaviour will be unleashed upon everyone in the museum all day on the 29th and 30th August.
