Creating History with Young Children - Storytelling Activism Workshop
April 9 | 10:00 - 15:30 | 1550 33rd Ave W | $10 for lunch and supplies (nobody turned away for lack of funds)

History is created daily in the lives of people. It is the reflection of our daily work. We create history through our actions, which becomes intentional when we reflect on how we act. In this unique workshop, early childhood educators, families and young children work together to create a future history that includes everyone - through care, dialogue, inquiry, thoughtful reflection, documentation and shared responsibility. Explore ways to document children's ways of relating to the construction of community and the creation of history today,  the powerful role of children in shaping a community, how child care workers can build from the experience of past social movements to create history and  think about how to transform child care with our relationships with children, families and each other.
