Swing It! was a temporary interactive commission in the summer of 2014 created by artists Morag Myerscough and Luke Morgan of Supergroup London.
This commission was part of Playful City – a 15-month artistic commissioning and learning programme. The installation itself was a canvas for live music, performance, outdoor film screenings and children’s workshops.
Other activity included ‘Playful Memories’ a series of workshops delivered with older people’s groups across the city exploring memories of play and creating new artworks.
Activity as part of this programme also sought to match up local artists with artists engaged in a placement in Madrid. These artists collaborated to create new temporary works in Wakefield City Centre.
Playful City was funded through Arts Council England, Wakefield Council and Creative Minds.
