With the popularity of Megan’s Open Letter to The Grouchy Guy Killin’ Our Play Vibes, I thought it was high time we shared a little more about this playwork we keep talking about.
Megan, Cam and now Grace have been learning about playwork over the past year with our friends over at Pop-up Adventure Play. They’re the same organization that first introduced us to the ever popular pop-up adventure playgrounds we’ve been hosting in and around the city (stay tuned for the summer 2016 schedule coming shortly!) and have had a huge impact on how we as an organization understand our work with kids.
For a basic understanding of playwork as a field and a practice, we encourage you to check out these highly informative guides from The Children’s Play Information Service and Play Wales.
