'The Land' Screening + Discussion Panel
Join us Friday, May 4 at 7pm as we screen ‘The Land’. This evening event is open to the public, and included in the agenda for the Prioritizing Play Conference. After the short documentary, named after an adventure playground in Wales, there will be a panel discussion including conference speakers. Childcare provided for parents interested in viewing and discussing this impressive short film. Location is at the Spurlock Museum- a short walk from the Illini Union. Filmed in 2015, this documentary short by Erin Davis follows several children as they navigate and create an adventure playground. Showing free play with hammers, saws and fire, Erin Davis’s work has been called “a must-see for anyone interested in play work, or play, period” (Amy Fusselman, author of Savage Park) and featured in publications such as the Atlantic, the New York Times, and on NPR. No tickets, but please RSVP here, as limited seats are available. And if you need childcare, please email us so that we are prepared for the right number of kiddos.
