Nurturing young movement builders through play
Let's Play! offers space for kids to connect with one another through art, games, music, dance, and other play-based activities. We're all about celebrating how young people do their thing and offering tools/ games/space for them to create, communicate, and express themselves. The Let's Play! track will also include workshops about body positivity, consent and communication, storytelling, magic, and more! This space will prioritize the experiences and leadership of young people and families with marginalized identities. This space will function separately from, but in close communication with, AMC’s Childcare Space. Come join us! Come play!
Coordinators of this track are Marisa Allison, Sarah Bernstein, and Ari Mejia.
Call for Participation
How do we create space in our movement work for young people to imagine a more just, joyful world through play? We are a childcare collective from Chicago looking for proposals that offer interactive spaces for youth to play, tell stories, and build relationships. We'd love to see proposals from other childcare collectives, parents, and youth workers, along with workshops designed by young people for young people. This track recognizes play as the media young people use with each other to communicate and envision the world that they want to build. Play is a crucial experience for young movement builders and a necessity for all our movements. This space will prioritize the experiences and leadership of young people and families with marginalized identities. This track is open to all young people but recommended for those 12 and under. Please include suggested age range in your proposal.
