Pop-Up Adventure Play have teamed up Learning Landscapes and Planet Earth Playscapes and will be in Portland, OR. They will be delivering a workshop and a Pop-Up Adventure Playground, and will be inspiring a community of adults to support child-directed play.

Everyone is invited to the Pop Up Adventure Playground. This is a free day time event where kids and families are welcome. March 25th 9:00am-1:00pm @ Tabor Space 5441 SE Belmont St. Tickets are not necessary

The evening workshop will be held March 25th 6:00-8:00pm @ The Portland Children's Museum 4015 SW Canyon Rd. You can purchase your ticket here.

This workshop discusses play's distinct qualities and benefits, drawing on UK-based playwork approaches and international applications.  We make explicit connections between children's self-directed play and whole-child learning, health and development on both individual and community levels. By tackling issues such risk and liability, interactions with parents, access to nature and behavioural concerns, we help participants to apply adventure play and playwork approaches to their own settings. Although addressing many topics included in the introductory session above, the content and depth are intended for professionals in diverse settings.  We offer a uniquely engaging and informative approach to the subject - and we include time for participants to play!  

This workshop includes:
~ What we mean when we say 'play' - exploring common ground
~ An invitation to play - followed by group reflection
~ Not 'unstructured', but 'self-structured' - what makes children's free play so special?
~ The power of 'yes' - tools for rethinking risk and challenge
~ Advocacy and explanation - encouraging meaningful engagement with parents
~ Taking play home - finding opportunities to effect immediate and long-term changes

This workshop is suitable for professionals who work with children. This is an adult only workshop.

PLEASE NOTE: Tickets for the evening workshop are limited. Washington Park now charges $4 for parking. Please consider car poling or taking the max.
