The Land: A Film Screening and Community Conversation About the Value of Risk and Adventure Play

October 22, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free. Pre-registration is required.

Providence Children’s Museum and Providence Children’s Film Festival proudly partner to present the Providence premiere of “The Land,” a 2015 documentary short film about the nature of play, risk and hazard set in a Welsh adventure playground where children climb trees, light fires and use hammers and nails.  The Land is a playspace rooted in the belief that kids are empowered and understand their own capabilities and limits when they learn to manage risks on their own.

Following the screening, join a lively conversation about the film, adventure play and the benefits of risk to kids’ physical and emotional development.  Discuss ways to foster healthy risk-taking in kids’ play, and how we can provide opportunities for adventure play in our communities.

Erin Davis, “The Land” filmmaker
Janice O’Donnell, Providence PlayCorps director
Michele Meek, Filmmaker & Educator
