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 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 Play Me, I’m Yours is currently live in Nicosia, Cyprus until 26 October 2014. More 2014/15 cities will be announced in due course – so watch this space! Read More...

Sunday morning, lovely light, city centre pretty much deserted. Best time to play a street piano if you're not so sure about having an audience!

The daughter of this Chinese man about to leave Melbourne asked me to play Happy Birthday for him. Tears streamed down her cheek in an expression of love for her dad as I played... or maybe it was the way I played it!! That made their day & mine - it was a joy to be part of it.
