Celebrating Gordon Sturrock

 - Adrian Voce

Gordon Sturrock identified that, for both playworkers and children, playing is a therapeutic and social dynamic. Increasingly his ideas situated playwork practice within a socio-political context. Drawing on social ecology (Bookchin), new economics (Standing, Raworth), and evolutionary biology (Schilthuizen), this talk will look at Gordon's vision of playwork as a blueprint for a type of activist-pedagogy to underpin an era of accelerating social change, with the climate emergency forcing humanity to shed the bondage of rapacious markets, hierarchical obeisance, and patriarchal myths, not for political revolution, but to realise a truer, more playful, better connected, human nature – and a more sustainable way to live together.

TIME: 11:00 - 12:15 LENGTH: 1.5 hours TARGET AUDIENCE: Play Harder
