Cardiff PLAY!

Outdoor Mini Projection Trail

Cardiff PLAY!  is a mini projection trail, designed to encourage children and families to play safely in outdoor spaces.  


Cardiff is the first city in Wales to participate in the UK committee for UNICEF’s national Child Friendly Cities  and Communities initiative.  As part of this, The Colour Foundry worked with Child Friendly Cardiff to devise workshops, training and scalable projection devices to facilitate the creative delivery of Cardiff PLAY!


Characters and their accompanying soundtracks were created in a series of on-line workshops with local schools in which they devised fantastical beasts and their stories.


Families were invited to take part in a light procession from the Wales Millennium Centre, to discover the Magic Lantern projections, and watch as an array of enchanting, dancing characters, frolicked in their habitats.  


Audiences could listen to a specially-composed soundtrack composed especially for each character.  The music was accessed via QR codes, triggered on the back of the magic lanterns.
