::: Marc Armitage August 2012 tour update
Playwork defines play as “what children and young people do when they follow their own ideas and interests in their own way and for their own reasons”.
Marc Armitage has been a playworker for nearly thirty years, the last twenty plus as an independent and freelance playworking consultant and he has a solid reputation of being one of the leading experts on PLAY in the United Kingdom.
During August Marc is visiting Australia to conduct a series of workshops, around Victoria, N.S.W. A.C.T. and Tasmania, but he is also in the process of planning for a return visit to Australia with further interstate appearances early in 2013.
Not only is Marc an exceptionally well respected expert on play, he is extremely funny (but don’t tell him we said that), highly motivational and very personable.
