Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over 10 million people worldwide, more than 1,700 street pianos have already been installed in over 55 cities across the globe, from London to New York, bearing the simple instruction Play Me, I’m Yours.
Located on streets, in public parks, markets and train stations the pianos are available for everyone to play and enjoy. Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment. Decorated by local artists and community groups, our street pianos create a place of exchange and an opportunity for people to connect.
Play Me I’m Yours is currently taking place, for the third year running, in Florence, South Carolina from 21 April – 7 May. Next up is Augsburg, Germany from 7 – 25 May, then Paris from 20 May – 11 July, Norfolk, Virginia from 23 May – 4 June, Grand Geneva from 14-27 June, and in Munich from 31 August – 17 September 2017.
We are also planning to present the project in Bristol from 17 August to 7 September 2017. We already have several sponsors onboard, but we need more to make it possible! Visit Bristol Street Pianos for more information about how to sponsor a piano and visit our Crowdfunder campaign to make a donation now!
We are currently working with a number of other potential partners for 2017 and 2018, so more new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...

Who doesn't LOVE pianos?? I had so much fun playing on 8 different ones a few weeks ago! Thanks, The Celebrity Series of Boston, for bringing those to town and to the artists who painted them so beautifully. It brought great joy to players and listeners. getting together around music is so spirit lifting, we need more of that. Enjoy the video!

Amazing location for the piano - in a community where everyone knows everyone.

Very colorful - but this afternoon lonesome - dueling pianos at SCAPE. Great to meet Wilma, creator of the piano on the left. Outside, so challenging to any player, but both very nice pianos to play! To all of the locals, more used to the circumstances, hope you'll find a moment to get out there and inspire a player to your left/right... Have fun and spend a moment on the good causes that made those 2 pianos possible!
