Play is an art form as well as a skill. Through play, children and adults are able to develop individually and together, express their innermost feelings and foster life-skills such as resilience, self-esteem and teambuilding. Veteran Playworker and expert on children's play, Marc Armitage, is coming to us from the UK to inspire play at home, in schools and in the community. Marc Armitage is an independent consultant, researcher and writer of children's play and the wider social world of children and young people (0-19 years). Working as a play worker in the UK for nearly thirty years, Marc has a solid reputation for being one of the leading experts on PLAY in the United Kingdom.
