Serious Play Event at the Barbican in London

Posted November 25, 2015

November 28, 2015: Immerse yourself in the joy of play through a day of free workshops, performances, and activities at this one day event inspired by The World of Charles and Ray Eames.

For Charles and Ray Eames, the importance of play was a source of creativity and made its way into all of their work. Immerse yourself in the joy of play through a day of workshops, performances and activities at this free, one day event inspired by The World of Charles and Ray Eames (through 14 Feb 2016).

Get creative and contribute to an installation with Shane Waltener, make your own spinning toy with Tony Hayward and come up with novel solutions to everyday problems with Peter Marigold. Immerse yourself in movement with New Movement Collective and interactive performance with Hunt & Darton, experiment with words with Rachel Long and Antosh Wojcik and play with light and images with Matheson Marcault. Don’t forget to take away your own personalised paper elephant designed with Codasign.

Free tours will also be available for The World of Charles and Ray Eames ticket holders at 12.30pm and 2pm.

All events are drop-in on the day with the exception of the poetry workshop with Rachel Long and Antosh Wojcik. Please sign-up in advance through the email below for either the Children’s Workshop (6-11 yrs), 11am-12.30pm, or the Advanced Workshop (13-18 yrs), 1.30-3.00pm.
