Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over six million people worldwide – more than 1,300 pianos have already been installed in 45 cities across the globe, from New York to London, bearing the simple instruction ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’.
Located in public parks, bus shelters and train stations, markets and even on ferries the pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. Who plays them and how long they remain on the streets is up to each community. Many pianos are personalised and decorated by artists or the local community. By creating a place of exchange Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.
We are delighted to announce that we have two cities signed up for 2015, with more to follow soon. First off is Florence, South Carolina in April/May, closely followed by Greater Geneva in June. We are currently working with a number of potential partners for 2015 and new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...

Delighted to discover this street piano festival whilst on holiday in Melbourne, having previously been involved in a similar event in Liverpool. This video was recorded on our way home after a late night out in the city.

The nearby busker had to wait until we were finished (and our crowd abated) before picking up his guitar to continue.
