    Reggio-Inspired Network of Minnesota invites you to participate in a New Initiative

    “LET’S TALK”

    September 15 7:00-8:15 PM (CST)


    “Let’s Talk” is an opportunity for conversation, provocation and question about our work with young children and the intersection of inspirations from the schools of Reggio Emilia.  Our goal is to create a space for networking the Network.  A facilitator will review a set of guidelines for open discussion at “Let’s Talk”, invite those who attend to introduce themselves, and then encourage topics from the group for discussion. This platform will allow for the emergence and sharing of ideas and perspective taking. 


    There will be an opportunity to break into small groups for focused discussions on suggested topics if the group would like to move in that direction.  “Let’s Talk” is offered on the 3rd Thursday of the month and is free to participants.

    The Reggio-Inspired Network of Minnesota 11th Annual Conference 

    The Atelier and the Grammar of Matter: 

    Featuring Roberta Pucci Speaking Live from Italy via Zoom

    What is an atelier? How is its space and organization? Which materials does it offer and what is the role of the atelierista?

    Starting from these questions, we will see how the atelier is the result of a certain idea of the child (and in general, of a human being), as owner of hundred languages. According to this idea and to our final goal as educators, the first original set-up of the atelier could evolve in many consistent variations, suitable to each different context.

    Of course, we will also discuss what are the essential reference points that can support us in the creation of our own atelier: one of the most important is experiencing firsthand the materials that will be presented to children.

    That’s why part of the session is dedicated to a practical workshop and the exploration of the “grammar” of materials: how will this short experience definitively change your approach? Looking forward to discover it together!
