Games for Places

Games for Places / 2014


Games for Places was a month-long series of installations across East Durham: six different locations, each with four or five games that would only work there, rules painted on the ground for people to stumble across and play. I worked on the project with theatre designer Hannah Sibai, who led on the design and physical installation.

The project ran in autumn, and alongside the games we made small interventions to the environment to make the spaces more playable: autumn leaves on the ground in the parks, arrows painted on paving stones near a community centre, lily pads near a waterlily pond.


Games for Places was commissioned for East Durham Creates (Durham, 2014).
