The Land: A Film Screening and Community Conversation About the Value of Risk and Adventure PlaySeptember 17, 2015
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.
