Playing Out is a two year project using art and play in outdoor spaces. Playing Out takes place in Conniburrow and in the centre of Milton Keynes, building links between the two. During 2017, artist family Townley and Bradby and participatory artist Georgie Manly are trying out a series of games, gatherings and art activities in Conniburrow. Those which resonate with Conniburrow residents will be developed and extended during 2018.
Playing Out is part of City Club and is produced by MK Gallery. The idea for City Club originated with artists Gareth Jones and Nils Norman as an ambitious project to re-imagine the public spaces surrounding an expanded MK Gallery. City Club has taken shape as a programme of new art, performances, family activities, happenings and talks inspired by the original cultural plans for Milton Keynes. City Club is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
