“So many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice began to think that very few things indeed were really impossible.” – Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Gowrie NSW is challenging leaders in early childhood centres and schools to broaden their views in a conference to be held at the Art Gallery of NSW in April this year.
The conference, Down the Rabbit Hole: a Festival of Bold Childhood Ideas, will require leaders to take a leap of faith as they listen to speakers who will challenge them and their thinking on childhood.
“The ideas presented during this conference will challenge leaders to broaden their perspective on gender, culture, inclusion and identity.” Conference co-organiser, Jan Faulkner said.
Manager of Education and Care at Gowrie NSW and co-creator of the conference, Rose Todd said of the conference.
“As a leader it’s important to feel stretched in our thinking to inspire, motivate and lead others. It’s the recharging of passion through the offering of bold ideas that allows us to be courageous in our thinking and impact the world around us.”
Gowrie has deliberately chosen speakers, such as well-known social commentator Jane Caro, cultural curator Alasdair Foster and Stronger Smarter Institute’s Fiona
Bobongie to unsettle conference goers and stimulate and provoke thinking and discussion beyond the event.
Down the Rabbit Hole: A Festival of Bold Childhood Ideas will be held on Friday 29 April 2016 in the Art Gallery of NSW. School principals, early childhood leaders, and those open to being challenged can book online.
