It’s all been happening in Canberra!

The 2016 International Festival of Landscape Architecture was hosted in Canberra from 27-30th October; aiming to connect the public with landscape architects. Amongst the exciting program was KIDSCAPE on Saturday 29th October in Haig Park- a free event of endless fun! 1000 people supported the event, with both kids and parents having fun participating in the various activities, such as:

  • Slack lines
  • Cardboard cities
  • Pump bike track
  • Mud kitchen/play
  • Kids parkour
  • Storytelling
  • Gardening activities
  • Lego building

We were central to the team making this festival and play day happen. KIDSCAPE was like an International Play Day, others of which Fiona has attended in Berlin and Hong Kong. ‘I was so proud to be part of a day where children were invited to participate in nature-based free-play activities,’ she said.

Fiona conducted a session of Gulliver’s Mapping – a consultation workshop encouraging kids to share views and ideas on Haig Park’s spaces.

On the success of this event we hope to see (and be involved in) more like it in Australia!
