'Making the Case for Circus and Play' with Martin King Sheard
There are growing numbers of us who are deeply concerned that as we recover from the effects of the pandemic that children’s right to play will not be given the importance it deserves. Much of the media attention seems to focus on children catching up academically but there seems to be no clear plan as to how children catch up with each other socially, regain lost confidence, adapt their physical skills and work through the emotional impact the lockdown and pandemic. Fortunately children have a well evolved mechanism that can help with all of these things and it is PLAY!
This workshop will explore
what play is
how we advocate for play to be a key part of the recovery plan for children
how the argument is supported by policy and research
how play and circus are linked.
Martin King-Sheard is a playworker, play trainer, play advocate and circus practitioner. He works for the National Charity, Play Wales, as the policy lead for Workforce Development and also volunteers as a circus tutor with CircoArts in North Wales.
