CULTURE AT WORK 2019 SPONSOR – THE STAR

Last Sunday each month 9-10am / FREE

CULTURE AT WORK is grateful for the support of a 2019 community grant from The Star.

Our family workshops are designed to bring the whole family and extended family together to play and create, experiment using a range of great play materials including Magformers, Little Bits, Lego and craft. CULTURE AT WORK is 10 years old this year on 24 Feb 2019.

Our education program is based on the theoretical framework of Lev Vygotsky, a Russian psychologist and amazing thinker. He observed children learning incrementally from engaging with another person. This process is called the Zone of Proximal Development or the ZPD. CULTURE AT WORK bases its programs and residencies on the work of Lev Vygotsky. That is why we invite parents and grandparents to come and learn and play with children and grandchildren. We can all learn from each other. Come and PLAY!
