Clean Up, Or Else!
While chores are not typically a child’s go-to version of ‘play’ or associated with fun times, The Artground (TAG) has collaborated with The Cminors to create Clean Up, Or Else! - an environment designed to make doing chores fun and meaningful, and even take the children on a literary wordplay spin-around!
In this latest arts installation, household chores balloon to enormous proportions to encourage active exploration and literary fun through poems and play to bring home the messages of shared responsibilities and of building good habits.
This playful idea is BIG on imagination and builds upon supersizing poems and ‘playing house’ to encourage family conversation around the values of kindness, helpfulness and responsibility over personal and shared spaces at home.
An Art Space by Children for Children
The Artground is a registered arts charity dedicated to children from birth to 9 years old and aims to provide positive arts experiences across a variety of art forms, and build bridges between artists, educators, parents and children from various communities. For this installation, TAG has collaborated with CMinors, an arts collective by three sisters (8, 10 and 12 years old) who dream of creating an epic mess and playing in it, and with their mummy Yi Lin.
Clean Up, Or Else! is truly an arts space imagined and designed by children for children!
