Rumpus Room is an artist-led initiative working in collaboration with children and young people on art and social action projects within the local neighbourhood of Govanhill. Its community includes children, young people, families, artists, educators, activists and play workers.

Loose Tomatoes In The Backyard brings together artists, writers and organisers Saffa Khan, Hussein Mitha, Nadia Rossi, Angel Walker, and Holly White. Their work is created in collaboration with children and the wider community at Rumpus Room. The artist group will spend time at the Rumpus Garden Club during the spring, working outdoors together with children to cultivate, build, write, make – becoming caretakers of the garden. Loose Tomatoes In The Backyard will respond to all things that happen in the Rumpus yard and the people, plants, ideas, and communities that grow from it. 

Loose Tomatoes In The Back Yard Solstice Gala Day
12pm-3pm, Sat 22 June, Rumpus Room Yard

Open to all neighbours and friends, pizza, garden smoothies, solstice face painting, sound and more.
