After three successful hands-on exhibitions, Playeum Children’s Centre for Creativity fourth interactive exhibition ‘Making It Home: Dreaming Rooms, Making Spaces, Creating Places’ at arts cluster Gillman Barracks is now open!

‘Making It Home’ is designed for children ages 1-12 and celebrates the home as a source of creativity, artistry and thinking. The spaces within the Children’s Centre for Creativity will be transformed into different ‘rooms’, each with a different purpose and opportunities to explore, experiment and redefine.

For example, one of the favourite activities is the memory game made out of toilet floor traps! Not only does the new exhibition explore repurposing of items found in a house, but it also serves as a reminder to everyone that creativity truly starts from the home.

Do children prefer playing with everyday toys, or creating things?

As the culture of excess and consumerism grows, the centre is taking a stand on the importance of going back to basics, setting out to show how playing with simple everyday household items and recyclable materials can unlock a child’s creative potential and enjoyment. Rethink the definition of play and consider how less is actually more.

In a social experiment, Playeum conducted a series of interviews with parents and their children to learn how much time they spend playing together as a family. Watch their reactions in the video below.

Opening Hours: Tuesday to Sunday
Time: 10am to 6pm
