We were very pleased and excited to be hanging out very briefly with our friend and PDC student Yulia, in Evanston. It was going to be a short stop. Pop-Up’s Morgan and I were presenting an interactive talk entitled “Let The Children Play: workshop on the amazing benefits of play.” We happened to be in the area for a keynote in Springfield, IL. This Evanston play workshop was a wonderful opportunity to get together.

With thanks to Pop-Ups friends Buffalo Pop-Up Play for the original design of this poster, and to Yulia’s friend Vladimir Kleiman for this lovely version.

If you were in the Evanston area you were invited to join our Evanston play workshop. Check out this Facebook event for details. We welcomed anyone who has an interest in play. Childcare was available. Attendees had the chance to learn about the benefits of play and network with like-minded individuals. It was an enriching experience for everyone involved.
It was great to be meeting more of our Playworker Development Course students. We also look forward to meeting others passionate about play. Before that though, we will focus on the Campference! More from us soon!
