THE FLEXIBLE PLAYSPACE
10:15 (CST 15:15; EST 03:15)
How does my DvT training apply to my work as a project manager in a community center?
How does DvT theory and practice apply to playspaces that are not therapeutic by definition?
In this lecture I will explore this topic through a case study – my work as project manager at "Tveria 15", a community center in the Hadar neighborhood in Haifa.
At "Tveria 15" I have the privilege to work with a team of open minded talented people and together we create our own playspace and in it, express ourselves.
I will present on how DvT theory and practice manifest in our teamwork and in our approach to the physical and conceptual space of the community center. I will focus the discussion on the term playspace and invite thought about other non-therapeutic spaces that DvT can be applied in.
