==========FAMILY PROJECT SPACE==========
This is an ongoing learning space during the conference offering childcare for parents attending workshops and exploring how documentation can be used to construct theory. Drawing from similarities between the radical pedagogies of Reggio Emilia and the Social Practice cannon, we will use processes of recording our surroundings to deepen our inquiries of, and connections to, the landscapes surrounding us for the day. You are welcome to drop in (and drop off) anytime! All ages are invited to participate. Materials will be provided. Pre-registration for the FPS encouraged but not required. Ask questions or pre-register by contacting Emma at firstname.lastname@example.org
