What’s Organic Play?

Well, this is a term I’ve coined ( I love inventing names!) to describe Play that is Organic in Nature and Spirit.

Organic  in Nature – Connects all participants (a.k.a. Players) to Mother Nature, to ourselves and with each other.
Organic  in Spirit – Encourages Players to lead the course of play, to listen to each other and to be willing to go with the Creative Flow of the play

What’s This Organic Play Party About?

A 2-hour session of Play, Play and More Play for parents with children aged 3 to 8.
But more than just another Free Play event, it’s an Experiment, Exploration and Exchange.

An experiment in how we can transform public spaces into playful places for all.
An exploration to see how we – you and I – can transform everyday spaces and objects to extraordinary experiences using nothing more than our imagination and presence.
An exchange of our stories, our abilities and our dreams with each other. Because everyone has something special to offer in making this world a better place.

In 2014, there are 4 scheduled Play Parties every quarter.
Each quarter, we’ll be exploring different sorts of play.

My Partner & Supporters

To create and deliver these playful experiences, I’m working with Early Childhood lecturers and 1st year trainee teachers from ITE College Central. These young students are very brave to be taking on this challenge of planning and facilitating Singapore’s 1st Organic Play event.

Great thanks must be given to these organizations for their funding that has allowed this to be a FREE entry event for all.
These Supporters are People’s Association, Tampines Central Community Centre and Residents’ Committee.
Tampines Central C.C. is also the main registration agent for the party.
