Join us October 4-6 at ICG for the 4th biennial ICG Play Symposium: a gathering for change-makers fostering a culture of play in their communities.
Featuring panels, play observation, presentations, and more, ICG’s Play Symposium is highly relevant for educators, parents, play professionals, parks and recreation staff, city administrators, and anyone passionate about children, education, the great outdoors, health, well-being, social justice, or play.
The 2019 Play Symposium theme is Play for All: Equity, Access, and Inclusion. ICG is incredibly excited to welcome Dr. Harrison Pinckney IV and Dr. Corliss Outley whose keynote will open the Symposium on Friday, October 4th. A professor within and the Associate Department Head of the Department of Recreation, Park, and Tourism Sciences at Texas A&M University, Dr. Outley works at the intersections of youth development, race and ethnicity, and urban parks and green spaces. Dr. Pinckney IV is a professor at Clemson University whose research examines the ways in which racial identity manifests itself in the lives of African American youth.
