Workshop Title: Lets’ build a playful neighbourhood (Logan)!

Workshop Outline:
Logan Children from Berrinba East & Eagleby South State Schools will join in for a hands-on workshop to create a playful cardboard neighbourhood!

Using recycled materials such as cardboard and material offcuts, children will work collectively to investigate how their neighbourhood could be more playful and child-friendly. Led by the workshop facilitators, children will first collectively discuss their aspirations and ideas for a more playful Logan. After the initial brainstorming session, the participants will create a collective masterplan vision and work together to build their ideas into a large-scale carboard city.

Note: Parents are welcome to accompany their children, but are not required to stay for the workshop
