Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over eight million people worldwide – more than 1,450 pianos have already been installed in 46 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.
The next city to host Play Me I’m Yours is Stockholm, starting on 8 August. Cities still to come in 2015 include Canary Wharf in September and Canterbury in October. We are currently working with a number of potential partners for 2015 & 2016, so more new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...

piano in the park in Geneva for anyone to play. There's always someone playing. I have seen children, young adults and very experienced adults as well. It's soooo nice to listen to people playing, even if they are just fooling around. Aiko absolutely loves it. We always have to stay watching and listening to them as she's says: "muca" (music) and she ALWAYS says "bravo!" at the end, clapping. Such a motivator! All it says on the piano is: "Play me, I'm yours". The project started in 2008 and there are more than 1,300 pianos in over 46 cities worldwide. Via Instagram
