Playwork is a profession wholly dedicated to supporting children's freely chosen, self-directed play in a variety of settings. Playwork approaches are used with children aged 0-19, and reframe such issues as challenging behavior and children's rights in unique and powerful ways. With its professional bodies, training structures and educational and theoretical frameworks firmly established in the UK, Germany, Japan and elsewhere, playwork is still "emerging" in the United States.
This is an unusual opportunity to hear a widely recognized and experienced playworker and playwork trainer speak on such topics as: what playwork offers, some of the key names and theories, and how playwork approaches can be combined with other ways of working.
Pop-Up Adventure Play is working with Little Creatures Films to bring Marc to NYC! Book your tickets today to see Marc Armitage on "Play For Its Own Sake: a playworking approach" in Red Hook, Brooklyn!
Red Hook might seem pretty far away but the free IKEA water taxi will take you just two blocks away from the venue. Show your support for Red Hook by attending this talk, and by donating to http://restoreredhook.org/.
