Workshop: A Tête-à-Tête with Things

By Julie Ann (Jules) Gilleland

Brussels: 18 October 2016

Join us for a fun engaging workshop filled with play, conversation, creation and thinking. Sit down across from someone you don't normally talk to and work together on a question or thought in front of you using only recycled circles brought in from their own homes/offices. (items will be provided for this workshop).

This is a hands-on workshop about how the "things" around us can become thinking tools in the classroom or office, in the same way we use paper and pencil.
