Transforming the institution’s library offered a second more tranquil space for quiet (or loud) exploration with a gentle colour-changing projection layered with drawings, where children and their adults responded to each other’s sounds through free rhythm and movement. People who took part fed back that this offered a supportive space for relaxed moments of solitary or collective creativity to take place.
