Socially-Distanced Chalkscape
Chalk Playscape outside V&A Dundee_01_AR

Socially distanced playscape comes to V&A Dundee as museum prepares to showcase design response to pandemic

The area outside V&A Dundee has been transformed into a giant interactive painted playground, as part of a collaboration with Abertay University.

The colourful chalk playscape aims to show the importance of playing together, even when you can’t be physically close.


Created by Abertay lecturers Dr Lynn Love and Dr Mona Bozdog, the installation is designed to allow visitors to interact and play games with one another while maintaining 2-metre social distancing.

The 150 square metre playscape contains six innovative games and experiences, including a painted garden, Echo – a soundscape which takes advantage of V&A Dundee’s unique architecture, and ‘Follow The Leader’, in which players replicate the actions of one participant.
