About the Event
You are invited to a Pop-Up Adventure Playground!
This is a temporary play space held at SUSU CommUNITY Farm, where children’s freedom is the top priority. Everyone will have full access to an abundance of recycled, repurposed, and natural materials such as cardboard boxes, ropes and fabrics, to recreate, dismantle, and transform as they please! Trained volunteers will be available to provide low-interventionist support in response to the play that emerges.
This youth-centered space is open to all kids but may be most suited to those between the ages of 2 and 12.
Dr. Morgan Leichter-Saxby, a local playworker and co-founder of Pop-Up Adventure Play, will also be offering further conversation for caregivers regarding Playwork (a decades-old professional approach towards supporting children’s play), therapeutics of joy, reconnecting with play in adulthood… and whatever else people are curious about!
