Mixed Up is a vibrant, interactive playground experience exploring our feelings and emotions through painting, music, and dance.  

Central to the experience will be a short film to enjoy together as a class. The film is an energetic, colourful, and creative expression of hip-hop dance and street art, filmed outside in Edinburgh. Then it’s time to get creative! Head for your playground for a teacher-facilitated large-scale drawing, supported by a range of materials, as part of the Mixed Up experience. The package also includes short videos and an in-classroom creative task to help children explore their feelings.

We’ve all been through a turbulent time – with separations, restrictions and loss. Our emotions are all mixed up and hard to express through words. This is a unique opportunity for young children to see how big feelings can safely be explored in a physical way.

Mixed Up will be delivered as a series of activities over two 45 minute sessions and will consist of short films, creative workshops recorded by the artists and guided teacher-led activities.

  • Session 1: A 10 min film and a 30 min teacher-led movement and drawing-based playground activity
  • Session 2: Three short films and related teacher-led art activity and a discussion session on emotions
