For the last couple of weeks we have been working with the brilliant Albion Kids Show, hanging out in their depot, chatting to Roger, making funny drawings and asking many annoying questions. Partly to get to know them but also for the pleasure of looking at and understanding all their mobile treasures. The Depot is a kind of save haven for a number of mobile porjects. Amongst them for the last two years we stored the Mobile Porch on the same yard (in the part belonging to Space Studios).
Last month muf asked the Wick Curiosity Shop to help develop a brief for the play equippment on Wick Green. What better then asking the expert who live just next door and we suggested to develop the brief with the Albion Kids Show and their playworkers who have been delivering mobile play in Hackney for the last 30 years.
As a first step we made a detailed inventory and have taken lots of pictures which you can see on our on our flickr group. On Thursday the 6th of October we will be on Wick Green flooding it with equippment from the Albion Kids Show and testing out how the green can be transformed, first temporarily and then more long term via muf's redesign. So bring your child and join us from 1-6 next Thursday!
