As creative practitioners, we instinctively know that our work connects with children’s innate ability to be creative, be curious, and to develop themselves through play.

However, understanding this; and even more so, communicating this; can be a challenge, especially when the concerns around ‘outcomes’ undermines the value of our process-led approach.

However, neuroscience is now showing is that the human brain has evolved with structures wired into the deepest part of the brain that are dedicated to curiosity & play, and that these are, therefore, vital to healthy development.

This illuminating session with Jo Stockdale from Well Within Reach will explain:

Suitable for: Artists and creatives in the Arts and Culture sector working in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
