"Our task is to help children communicate with the world using all their potential, strengths and languages, and to overcome any obstacle presented by our culture". Loris Malaguzzi
Join us for the 10th Annual Family Literacy Conference for Professionals! Participants partake in inter-professional perspectives, reflective dialogue, and collaborative inquiry as we consider all facets of literacy in relation to overall well-being, children’s rights, and in building safe, inclusive, and vibrant communities and learning environments.
This year, the Family Literacy Conference is going virtual! Through four special evening presentations, we will explore the power of story and storytelling in our work with children, youth, and families. How do stories shape us, connect us, challenge us, inspireus? And how can we engage with story as a tool to lift up and empower youngvoices?
To kick things off on Tuesday, October 19, we invite you to share in, Gathering Magic for Yourself, Your Family, Your Community and Future Generations, facilitated by the gregarious and enigmatic, Richard Van Camp.
In this hilarious and empowering session, Richard will share stories and techniques on how to gather family and community medicines to help you with your sweet life.
