99 Tiny Games in London
Showtime, a free outdoor arts festival in London presented by the Mayor of London and the London 2012 Festival just wrapped up “99 Tiny Games” (running from July 28th – August 20th) which spread small games with instructions for individuals and groups in public spaces all over London’s 33 boroughs.
These games took place in a variety of urban spaces including metro station walls, under archways, near statues and at bus stops.
Showtime says their motivation for this series was inspired by their “belief that play – as a theme, art form, way of being and design tool – is integral to understanding how culture will develop in the 21st century.”
This is a great example of how we can inexpensively contribute to lively public spaces and joyful experiences in our cities.
