Yinka Ilori’s Playground Enjoys a New Lease of Life after LDW 2017

SEEN loved Yinka Ilori’s Estate Playground, which debuted at citizenM in Shoreditch during LDF 2017. So often installations can be a blink-and-you-miss-it experience, destined to live on after the event in art storage facilities.

So, we are delighted to hear that citizenM has donated Estate Playground to the Bow Arts charity, who have re-installed it on Royal Albert Wharf as part of the new cultural regeneration project R.A.W Labs. In addition to 40 artist studios, housing and retail, the space in East London will be a hub where people can explore different creative practices, make their own or just look and enjoy.

Sustainability and community are two key pillars of the citizenM ethos, so the team is thrilled that the collaboration lives on for future visitors. Bow Arts work with hundreds of schools across London and many of them will be able to experience the Playground. Quite right too.
