S.T.A.R* Tot Workshop Inspired by Earth Super Heroes

Book via Eventbrite here.

Bring your tots to S.T.A.R* Tot workshops – immersive storytelling, art inquiry & creative, messy & sensory play in a child-centred environment. Sharon McGregor established the StarTot workshops because she believe it’s essential to offer an opportunity for babies/toddlers/preschoolers (with their caregivers) to creatively explore themes in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (STEM) through messy, sensory and creative play.

Civil Twilight

17:30 – 19:30

Book via Eventbrite here.

A workshop on harvesting the benefits of sleep through the ecological arts of poetry and music.

Get your brain sticky in the pumpkin meat of the circadian and join Kevin Leomo and Maria Sledmere in carving dreamtime as an expression of creativity and low carbon pleasure. As the nights draw in and the clocks go back, we’ll be thinking about how darkness affects mood and slumber. Civil twilight is the brightest of the three twilight phases, where stars and planets might be seen in the sky as the sun dips just below the horizon. By attending to the ‘nocturne’ as a form in poetry and music, we’ll dwell in the possibilities of liminal experience for cultivating ecological imaginaries.

Please bring: Preferred writing materials, If you have one, a reusable coffee cup, Headphones and phone

*Booking via Eventbrite to be announced soon*
