Provoking motion and making movement


MacLaurin Building (MAC) A- Wing, A. Wilfrid Johns Gallery

Messages about how and why we should move our bodies are constantly present in modern Canadian lives (for example, the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology Guidelines and Healthy Schools BC). What gets defined as movement? How is movement lived? What does movement do? This arts-inspired movement studio was created through several collaborative inquiries among young children and early childhood educators and is an invitation for participants of all ages to explore possibilities with movement. Rather than declaring what movement is, this studio-exhibit acts as a provocation to question, wonder, experiment and move together.

Exhibit launch: March 6th, 4:30-5:30pm

Regular exhibit hours: March 6-11th, 9:30 am-6:30pm

Presented by researchers and educators at UVic’s School of Child and Youth Care and UVic Child Care Services​​
