Cultural Geographies of Play your Place

“The recognition that “making is connecting” (Gauntlett, 2011) has become increasingly commonplace across contemporary arts practices and beyond, while the rise of participatory art recognizes the potential of aesthetic practices to take on a socially-instrumentalised form, connecting diverse communities and fostering ethical relationships between people and their places and the environment (Kester, 2004, 2011). Yet this widely recognized social value of the arts, and its possibilities for connecting people and places, presents a need to reflect critically on the dynamics and value of these relationships, to query in short, the forms of relationship that arts practices can produce between individuals, and with respect to the individuals, and the communities and environments in which they live.”

In this report Dr Harriet Hawkins reflects on these questions in relation to Play Southend in a piece of research commissioned by Creativeworks London through their Creative Voucher scheme.
