Skipping Stones – ReCreating Place – Dance Here

April 5, 2016


Outdoor school holiday adventures for children and families. Relate and create playfully in the moment. A very special opportunity to visit the Yellingbo Conservation Reserve, home of the endangered Helmeted Honey Eater and the theme and inspiration for these workshops. These outdoor school holiday adventures for children, will combine elements of dance, theatre, ephemeral art & outdoor education. Facilitated by Mandy Pickett and Cora Zon, who have extensive experience in running arts activities for both children and adults, in collaboration with James Frazer, Environmental Coordinator FOHH. James will provide an introduction to the critically endangered Helmeted Honeyeater, highlighting it’s habitat requirements and the role members of the public can play in saving the species. Mandy & Cora will encourage participants to take time, listen, be present and build awareness of each other & this very special environment. We will venture into the nearby habitat, learn, explore, create & relate playfully in the moment. A unique opportunity to connect to nature through artistic adventures.
