Play Iceland 2015 is almost fully booked!! We are honoured and excited by all the interest and can’t wait to meet all the amazing people that have signed up. The group is very versatile and packed with real experience and sincere passion for good early years practice. Just how we like it. We have registrations from America, England and Switzerland as well as some other countries that have not confirmed yet.
We decided to let the event grow a bit this year by offering more places as well as making it a day longer. We had some conversations and feedback from friends from last year and a full workshop day seemed needed to process all the new information, mix up the groups and reflect on how we are all different in our approach while still being awesome. Especially the awesome part as there is never a dull moment when early years practitioners come together!
It is a trip where your perspective will be broadened by how Icelandic children are expected to to be capable and how little impact health&safety has on play here. But you will also find most of the inspiration in connecting with the other travellers - participating in rich conversations and building new friendships that you can continue to grow after the event.
This year we will be joined by team Elska - a small group of people that produce theatre for children in New York in an almost philosophical way. They will say that they are entertainers, but they put a lot of thought and research into what they do to create something of real value. It is not just one more dull thing created by marketers to sell stuff, but a real work of art. They will join our workshop and ask some really interesting and thought provoking questions on how entertainment is influencing childhood.
It will be an amazing event. We really can’t wait!
If you are just hearing about this now and want to join us then you will need to move fast and register here.
