Lyn Gardner: Playing Up

The launch of PLAYING UP was marked with a three-day public ‘play-in’ for children and families at Tate Modern, followed by a major symposium with leading thinkers and practitioners in the field.

Lyn Gardner has written an article about the launch and talks about having good fun, encouraging intergenerational exchanges and challenging what artists could learn from children.
