There’s a Playday happening in Melbourne this Saturday 29th October. It’s centered around the National Gallery Victoria Studio but also out in Federation Square and beyond. It’s being co-hosted by Freeplay, Pop Up Playground, and the Society of Coney.
A playday is an open space to play and make play. Whether you’re a player or a maker (or a wannabe playful secret agent) you can drop in any time from 10am til late and find something playful happening, from games to guerrilla art challenges to scratch making sessions to missions on the streets to chatting over drinks (yes, that is playful too).
Some things to wet your whistle…
• from 1pm to 3pm: games including Earpiece and Lose The Tail (and we hope the fabulous Checkpoint) out in Federation Square
• from 3pm to 5pm: playful secret agent missions out on the streets, run by a representative of the Society of Coney (text 0435740476 for rendezvous)
• 8pm: a Show and Tell Salon in NGV Studio with demipecha presentations from all kinds of quite interesting people.
There will be playful stuff happening from morning to night. It’s open to all, and bring whoever you like. You can just turn up on the day for as long or as short as you like. Look for lemons – yes, lemons – around the NGV Studio or in Fed Square itself.
