Integrate Play Solutions presents

the only BC screenings of both these must see documentaries together on play.

Project WILD Thing and The Land, will be followed by a panel discussion of global play experts.

Project Wild Thing is a light-hearted but serious investigation into how children’s experience of the outdoors has changed

Trailer Project Wild Thing

The Land provides unique, raw footage of the nature of play on an adventure playground in Wales, UK and serves as a starting point to explore crucial elements of childhood such as risk, hazard and children’s self-management as well as the delicate processes of playwork.

Trailer The Land

Panel Speakers:

We are very honoured to be one of the 18 stops on the Canadian tour of UK’s POP-UP Adventure Play charity. Morgan, Suzanna, and Andy will draw on their experiences in the UK, US, Australia, and Asia to share their knowledge about play and playwork. By clearly distinguishing children’s self-directed play from adult-led activities, they will outline ways to support children’s processes without intervening while improving any environment for play.

Dr. Mariana Brussoni
Thrilled and privileged to have Associate Professor of UBC on the panel to share her perspectives and insights related to extensive research
around investigating the importance of outdoor risky play for children’s healthy development, and how built outdoor environment impacts children’s play.

Dr Helen Little

We are very lucky to have all the way from Sydney, Australia Senior Lecturer Helen Little of Macquarie University. Primary interests are in outdoor play and learning, particularly characteristics of the outdoor play environment that promote 'risky' play. Dr. Little's research also examines pedagogical practices and policy relating to outdoor play provision, and it's influence on children's 'risky play' in Early Childhood settings. This interest in children's developmentally challenging physical play also includes play provision in the wider community (eg. park playgrounds) as well as in EC settings.

When:

One night only, not to be missed (even with the back to school craziness) for this is a rare opportunity to meet and greet our esteemed guest speakers. Limited seats available.
