Pop Up Play Indy
Saturday, June 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Marian University - 3200 Cold Spring Rd.
Join the movement to bring play back into the lives of today’s children! This goes beyond your everyday conference – it’s a chance to observe children in charge of their own play and learn why this is vital to future generations. Keynote speaker Morgan Leichter Saxby, Cofounder and Director of Training for the U.K.-based Pop-Up Adventure Play organization, will share her playwork experience and how her organization can help us bring pop up playgrounds to our own communities. Breakout sessions will include experience-sharing from programs who have successfully implemented the playwork model, information on the benefits of child-directed play, and a screening of The Land documentary. We’ll spend the afternoon on the playground, observing children in action on our very own pop up playground.
Who should attend: Anyone interested in making Indianapolis a play-friendly community: parks and recreation staff, health professionals, social service agencies, community centers, and educators will fit right in!
Cost: $85. Includes lunch and two books, The New Adventure Playground Movement and Playing It Up.
Registration: Register by June 3 to secure your spot – spots are limited!
