PLAYAWAY is Delta Arts' recent project with two adventure playgrounds in Portsmouth and South London.
Earlier this year Delta Arts invited filmmaker Hannah Blackmore and artist Abigail Gilchrist to work at Somerstown Adventure Playground on Portsmouth’s Somerstown estate and Somerville Adventure Playground in New Cross. They used a range of cameras, including miniature head-cams, to explore play with the children, and to find out how the two communities value their adventure playgrounds. We learned about the issues they share and those specific to each context. We were particularly interested in the specific point of view of the children, using play and video to communicate.
Delta Arts presented this film as part of Soapbox at the 2013 engage International Conference, in Birmingham, in November 2013.
