Spreading The Word
On March 15th, Tom and Jenny gave one of the keynote speeches at a joint conference of The Association for the Study of Play and the International Play Association! The focus and purpose of the talk was to bring the needs of children in orphanages and in extreme poverty to an audience of 200+ researchers, professors and practitioners. While the conference participants were primarily academics and researchers, Tom and Jenny’s talk was not technical but rather challenged the audience to recognize, understand and serve the most vulnerable.
The presentation was a rousing success with many post-presentation questions and post-conference follow-ups.
Next up - a co-presentation with Islamic Relief at the InterAction Conference in June. See the next post for more info.
