The Ontario Reggio Association is hosting the Mosaic of Marks, Words, Material Exhibition and Atelier from the infant-toddler centres and preschools in Reggio Emilia in 2023, in Toronto mid- March to mid-April; Sudbury mid-April – mid-May; and Ottawa mid-May – mid-June. This exhibit focuses on children’s mark-making and the relationship with intertwining words and stories, “creating an intelligent and often poetic mosaic” (Catalogue of the exhibit, p. 15).
In order to prepare for the presence of the exhibit, we are offering an online series based on the rich and thought-provoking catalogue of the exhibit, published by Reggio Children. The series will be guided by Patty Randall and Gabriela Garcia from the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance (NAREA). The exhibit has been in Atlanta (NAREA’s home base) since 2019, and Patty and Gabriela have had rich opportunities to study it with educators and families.
Our series of dialogues will take place via Zoom from 6:30 – 8:00 on the following dates:
October 24, 2022
November 14, 2022
December 5, 2022
January 9, 2023
January 30, 2023
Registration fee for members is $75.
The catalogue can be ordered from Different Drummer Books. We recommend ordering it ASAP in order to ensure its delivery before the series begins.
Please note, while the main gathering will be delivered in English, there will be opportunity for Francophone participants to dialogue in French in break-out groups during the sessions.
