Pocket Park Games is another commission as part of the GOOD GAME project that I worked on in the summer with Ampersand Projects.
Anna ran a number of workshops in Warley Woods, a local park in Bearwood, where people were encouraged to play traditional games and then reinvent and remix them. She also worked with Polly Tisdall, a storyteller and theatre maker, to explore narrative games and how families could work together to create their own game-like worlds. Together, these activities informed the creation of Pocket Park Games, a compendium of games and activities that encourage people of any age to explore urban green spaces in new ways.
Pocket Park Games will be distributed to parks, green spaces and community venues in The Black Country and Birmingham from October 2018. To request a pack, please email: matt.andrews[at]ampersandprojects.org
