On 19th October 2020 we held our first ever PARS playwork conference -12 hours and online, it may have been the world’s first ‘open access’ playwork conference! This exciting new playwork conference showcased PARS practice in Hong Kong, Australia, mainland China, Belgium, UK and The Netherlands. It also featured leading international academics talking about PARS methods and theories. Participants from Spain, Hong Kong, Australia, Brazil, Germany, Japan, Ireland, Ethiopia, USA, The Netherlands, UK, Belgium, China, Turkey, Sweden, Singapore and Taiwan met, listened, discussed and networked over the 12 hour period and many have told us what a wonderfully welcoming and friendly event it was! Other comments included….“After today’s conference, I have deeper understanding of what play work is.” “I hope there will be more opportunities in the future. Thank you Shelly, Rebekah and all the presenters for a really insightful and inspiring day.” “Its been a great day of sharing, thanks for organising it, I have to leave but am doing so with a big smile from the days information.”
After the first conference we received several requests to run another one – so, due to popular demand as they say, the second PARS conference will take place on Saturday, 20th November 2021 (International Children’s Day)! Bookings will open in April, but if you attended the first conference you can reserve your place now by emailing us. Join our mailing list if you would like us to email you when bookings open.
