Re-imagining Childhood Project

In 2017, the Re-Imagining Childhood Conference was hosted in Adelaide and featured a number of presentations from individual and services who participated in The South Australian Collaborative Childhood Project (TSACCP).  The project was a state-wide network that has been developed by the South Australian Government to respond to the recommendations provided by former Adelaide Thinker in Residence, Professor Carla Rinaldi through her report, Re-imagining Childhood: the inspiration of Reggio Emilia education principles in South Australia.

There are five Keynote presentations from noted experts Professors Lester Irabrinna Rigney, Martin Westwell, Gunilla Dahlberg, Susanna Mantovani and Peter Moss.

Eight concurrent sessions were also recorded, presented by educators who have embraced the Reggio Emilia concepts and show their experiences with these ideologies.

Each presentation is available for purchase for $25 from the ECA shop.


Keynote Address – Ethics and Politics in Early Childhood Education revisited

Price $25
Twelve years ago, Professor Moss wrote a book with Gunilla Dahlberg, Ethics and Politics in Early Childhood Education; and argued that ethics and politics should be the starting point for early childhood education. In this presentation, Professor Moss returns to this theme, believing it to be more important than ever, given the troubled times in which we live and the dominant discourse in today’s early childhood education.
