Kuti Kuti?

Kuti Kuti? is an intergenerational community art project that reimagines our old-school game into an interactive, life-sized soft sculpture playground through co-creation. The project celebrates the joyful instinct of analogue play and storytelling to connect people from different walks of life in the digital age. Kuti Kuti is a traditional children's game in which two competing players are challenged to flip tokens on top of their opponent's. Turning competition into connection, Kuti Kuti? Maker Lab hosts public participatory workshops for the community to conceptualise, collaborate and co-create a series of life-size Kuti Kuti soft sculptures together.

This interactive installation presents a soft sculpture playground co-created with the public community. How and what we play with reflects our stories and how we might adapt to the world around us. In this collaborative artwork, each ‘Kuti Kuti’ is a personal emblem of play to the individual contributing participants from Kuti Kuti? Maker Lab, ranging from aged 1 year old to 82 years old.

Join us to co-create your Kuti Kuti at our Maker Lab, or come play with our interactive art installation at our Kuti Kuti? Playground Exhibition. Come flip a ‘Kuti Kuti’, discover the birth stories of each ‘Kuti Kuti’ or invent your own rules to play!
