ICG's 2016 Play Symposium

2016 Ithaca Children’s Garden Play Symposium: Digging DeeperPlay-Symposium-2016.jpg

For the past three years, Ithaca Children’s Garden has hosted the ICG’s Play Symposium: a gathering for change-makers fostering a culture of play in their own communities.

The international movement toward child-directed free play is growing fast. At the leading edge is Ithaca Children's Garden’s unique Hands-on-Nature Anarchy Zone, in partnership with US Fish and Wildlife Service.

Thank you to all who joined us for two days of sharing, discussion, and play, while learning from local initiatives and play leaders from across the US and abroad.

This year, Play Symposium featured panels, play observation, presentations, and so much more.
