Yes! So a new adventure starts for Playeum. If you have been to the Children’s Centre for Creativity, you’ve experienced the creative energy, seen how your imagination takes flight and how you may have come up with multiple solutions for what you are creating. That creative energy carries forth…
Just like everyone else, it has been a time of much change. A lot of the work we do with you has been in person and we’ve had to find creative means and ways of still keeping in touch. Since you can’t come to us for now and some unknown time ahead, we figured it would be best to find stronger ways to play together with you.
We are moving from our first Playeum home in Gillman Barracks and growing into different spaces all over as we move ahead - both in the real world and in the cyberworld.
Our mission to unleash the creativity and imagination in children and their ability to be active citizens still rings true, especially where we need to level the playing field for children from challenging backgrounds. Read more about our plans ahead below :)
The last five years at the Children’s Centre for Creativity has brought us wonderful memories! We made so many new friends (of all ages!) & collaborated with many inspiring individuals and groups, all who gave a little something in their own special way and made our space feel like home to many.
While we will miss the Centre, we know that we’re taking with us memories and experiences like no other as we move into our new Playeum adventure.
The sky is not the limit with our new adventure and we’re excited for what’s to come. It might look a little different, but we promise you it will be just as playful and meaningful as it has always been :) You’ll find us online and in different communities like schools, charities and social spaces alongside all children and their adults.
We thank you for being part of one of Playeum’s many adventures - the Children’s Centre for Creativity at Gillman Barracks. It’s a walk into the unknown but if you hold our hand, we’ll discover new adventures together!
With Love & Gratitude,
The Team at Playeum
