Volunteers Wanted! Doors Open Day
The City of Play is looking for keen individuals to assist at the ‘Mazing Memory Museum event for Glasgow Doors Open Day 2015.
The City of Play will create a temporary playful installation to engage families/children with their city through play; making lasting memories which are connected to a place.
A child friendly maze constructed entirely of straw bales will be set up with a themed creative workshop at its centre. The workshop within the ‘museum’ will encourage participants to design and decorate their own ceramic models where they can attach their own ‘oral histories’. The resultant ceramic vehicles will then form a mini transport museum like experience.
