Program Highlights
Tanya Vincent on play yards in Copenhagen

Tanya will share her innovative project focusing on the Play Yards of Copenhagen that she undertook as part of a Churchill Fellowship in 2012. A play yard is a unique initiative – a place for children and their families living in high density neighbourhoods where the purpose is to provide a free, safe place dedicated for the daily, outdoor play of children (0-16 years) as well as opportunities for their families to socialise and connect with others. During this presentation, Tanya will share her story of researching the play yards and exploring how this model could be translated into other contexts to provide a space for children in the middle childhood years.

How do we help develop child agency and self-determination in an OSHC environment?

Corey McNair and Kathryn Simpson from Annette’s Place Early Education and Out of School Hours Program present their Participatory Action Research Project highlighting the inquiry that they undertook to investigate questions about children’s agency within an OSHC program.

National Art School present Botanica Abstractica

An inspiring two-hour workshop to explore the possibilities of image making using flora and fauna by investigating the composition and construction of collage processes, drawing and painting, moving from realistic to abstract imagery. Develop your own unique way of seeing and making via the possibilities of collage. Participants will construct their own small collage studies and resolve these into larger sustained drawings as a basis for a finished work in paint.
