INSPIRE 2023, a conference of national and international speakers who will challenge us to consider the role of fantasy, to act, and not be limited by what we have, but to dream about what can be… and the possibilities for the early childhood sector.
The conference motif INSPIRE: Fantasy, Opportunity, Reality aims to act as a contagion for social and pedagogical change within the early years sector. We aim to provide a space for all who participate to explore how the concept of fantasy can pave new ways of thinking and doing, how opportunity propels us to act on what we dream of and how reality brings these aspirations into practice.
We will explore the multiple interpretations of inspiration; offering fantasy, opportunity and reality as a provocation to launch and ground ideas and stories. To question our future – how might we shape, influence and achieve change in thinking and practice. To consider the value of fantasy in what we do – is it necessary to find a space to think along others who dare to dream? To discuss how, in a sector filled with long held beliefs which are framed as the ’truth of quality’, we focus our energy to realise our aspirations for early education and children.The conference will be held on the 23, 24 and 25 March 2023 at the Sydney International Convention Centre.
Join international and national presenters, including inspirational practitioners at the conference.
