Kamishibai is a form of storytelling street art which is said to have started in Japan in the late 1920s. The typical “Kamishibai Man” was a candy seller and storyteller that sold candies or treats to crowds of children on busy urban street corners in Japan until the 1950s. Illustrated giant picture cards were inserted into a small wooden stage for children to see while the script or suggestions for the story was written on the other side for the storyteller. Some artists who made their living with Kamishibai eventually turned to the creation of manga (Japanese comic books) and Kamishibai is in fact often viewed as the precursor of modern manga! Besides Kamishibai, the storytelling sessions also includes fun stories where the children can get to interact with the storytellers.

The new exhibition is all about dreaming rooms, making spaces and creating places. Kids (and parents) will be able to experience the home as a place where many ordinary materials can have multiple purposes and support imagination, innovation and sustainability.

Interestingly, the spaces within the indoor playground - if you can call Playeum that - have been transformed into different ‘rooms’, each with a different purpose with different opportunities for the kids to explore, experiment and redefine. Whether it is imagining colours, materials and designs for floors walls and ceilings, to conjuring up art works with sand or recyclable materials, kids can stretch their creativity and imagination to the limit!
