Tŷ Pawb’s gallery will be transformed into a film set where children will work alongside artists, playworkers, and filmmakers to explore play in Wrexham.
Play - The Movie! is the vision of artist Rachael Clerke, commissioned by Tŷ Pawb and working in partnership with playworker Penny Wilson of Assemble Play.
The project will see Tŷ Pawb’s gallery one transformed into an evolving film set for eight weeks this summer, from 29th July - 23rd September. During this time, children will work alongside artists Ella Jones, Harold Offeh, Noemi Santos, Sarah Ryder, Jamila Walker and Rhi Moxon, local playworkers and 73 Degrees films to collaboratively create an epic feature length film that explores play in Wrexham. How & where do we play now, how and where do we want to play in the future?
Play - The Movie! has links to the Welsh Play Sufficiency Assessment, and research being carried out in relation to Wrexham’s forthcoming campaign to become UK City of Culture 2029.
Anyone is welcome to get involved, either behind the scenes or in front of the camera. The finished film will premiere in a red carpet event at Wrexham Odeon in late 2023.
The more you see, the more we do.
