Everyone should come to this

… not because I’ll be there, but because many other fabulous people will be.

It will be great!

This afternoon symposium explores the social uses of conflict through looking at ‘play-fighting’ in various different forms, the ‘rough and tumble’ of children’s play, the role of conflict in socially-engaged art practices, as well as the organisational/community contexts through which the process of conflict and resolution take place.

Playworker, writer and activist Morgan Leichter-Saxby frames the debate, exploring the ways in which play can help us access aspects of ourselves that we fight against knowing or accepting. She argues that, both in psychological and neighbourhood contexts, play can be a process by which the marginalized becomes incorporated into the whole. Artists Laura Eldret and Anthony Schrag talk about their recent work with children exploring play-fighting, commissioned as part of SLG Local, along with contributions from young people and children themselves.

This event is part of  SLG Local, which is sponsored by Bloomberg and funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund.
