Storyplay for the Planet

Our East Centre Ward Residency

Storyplay for the Planet is a series of Storyplay & Have Your Say Through Play sessions for families with 3-12 year olds in Glasgow’s East Centre Ward (Cranhill, Riddle, Carntyne, Springboig & Barlanark)

Licketyspit is delivering sessions in schools, nurseries and online for communities across the ward to support confidence, parental engagement, relationships and children’s rights.

The school groups will receive an introductory Storyplay session, followed by a Have your Say Through Play session to support the children to express their thoughts, feelings & ideas about Climate Change using imaginary play.

These sessions will be a chance for families to explore the issue of climate change and share their feelings about it creatively, elevating children’s voices and demonstrating the power of imagination to find solutions to the greatest collective challenge of our time!

The project is part of the Glasgow Life Artist in Residency Programme.

There are also some online Storyplay for the Planet sessions supported by Bloomberg to feed into the Create4Glasgow campaign. More on that project here.

And some in-person sessions in Cranhill Park & Barlanark Park.

This project has now ended.

Read the Zine

This Zine was produced as part of the project with Lead Actor-Pedagogue Effie Scott editing together the children’s stories, ideas and reflective drawings.

It is both a record of the sessions and an invitation to use your imagination and creativity to explore ways to protect our planet.

You can pick up a physical copy at Cranhill Development Trust, Barlanark Community Centre and the schools and nurseries around the ward.

You can download a text-only version of the Zine for use with E-readers or Google translate here.
