on the 22nd November members of Tate Forum will guide shapers of public space and members of the public on a circuit in the vicinity of Tate Britain. We will be demonstrating techniques for being joyful in public spaces. Don't just walk down the street with your walking-down-the-street face on, try such things as joining human lines to link objects in the landscape or seeing how many people can fit on a paving stone.

A Passer-by does the Mobile Limbo

In our second Street Training Session with children from Gloucester Primary School, we looked at the blog posts here that recorded their first ideas for having fun in the streets. In the last session they practiced techniques in the playground but out in the streets they developed them and invented loads of new moves for the Peckham Street Training tour based on the things that they found on the way.
in this photo a passing cyclist has been enticed into doing limbo with us, i made her smile.

    Meeting in Peckham

    Submitted by ruthc on Sat, 2008-07-26 19:53

    We're all meeting (well apart from Aileen <-sniff->) in Peckham on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the workshops in Peckham. I will be expected to have something to show- a rationale, a structure, a working prototype. Very excited by how far we've go so far but still some way to go.
