Simon led a series of two-hour encounters with making at ArtPlay, the Children and Family Art centre in Melbourne, for 50 participants over the weekend of 7-8 October 2017. all that we are invites adults and children alike to create a figure representing themselves using fallen branches and plaster bandages. The completed figures created a temporary exhibition at RMIT on the weekend of 20-21 October. Within the design of this creative encounter there are many key elements of the practice of public participatory making. For this reason this work sits at the heart of Simon’s PhD.
