Playing with Big Ideas - A remarkable gathering of leading thinkers, authors and early years specialists are coming together to share their thoughts, concerns and ideas about modern childhood at the first four-day International Festival of Childhood (IFC1017) that will take place in Bath on the 29th June to 2nd July 2017.
The event will consist of a multidisciplinary seminar, surrounded by inspiring, creative and playful events and activities. The Festival is the result of a collaboration between the national Save Childhood Movement and the Bath-based cultural organisation 5x5x5=creativity. The festival is aligned with Bath’s annual Forest of Imagination contemporary arts initiative, and partners include the National Trust, the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) and Bath Festivals. The City of Bath is hosting the event as part of its commitment to becoming a UNICEF Child Friendly City and Community.
Aimed at a wide audience, the event is open to everyone who is concerned about the pressures on young children and families and the current erosion of childhood.
