Presentation #1: Sandbox Symposium: New Approaches in Play Design
What would playgrounds look like if they were designed to provide children with the highest-quality outdoor play experiences for their healthy development?
Sara Brunelle is a landscape architect and researcher focused on play design. She will show how spaces designed for optimal play experience can change children's behaviour and developmental trajectory.
Presentation #2: Playing with Paper!
Using only paper, masking tape, and our adult imaginations we will construct puppets, creatures, and the improbable. Through group improvisation and the telling of short stories we will learn basic manipulation techniques to bring it all to life!
Stephen Quinlan is an interprète of the interdisciplinary variety. Most recently he ran away to join the circus but now he's back and ready for action.
