The Health of a Nation Can Be Measured by the Health of Children in the Neighbourhood
OUR MISSION: To find families willing to work with us to activate their neighbourhood as a place for children to play, and to capture the journey in this documentary.
Did we achieve this? We invite you to come along to the premier screening, and find out for yourself...
This timely and important documentary is centered on two of our most precious resources.... our children and where we live.
It is no secret that over the past 30 years, childhood has drastically changed.
Children are quickly losing interest in a world beyond their front door. The way this generation plays is vastly different to their parents.
We went on a mission: to see if we could find families willing to go on a journey with us, to try to activate their neighbourhoods as places for children to play.
But is it possible in this modern world?
After months of planning, searching, connecting, playing and exploring this topic, and exploring many average Australian suburban neighbourhoods; after facing many challenges, having many tough conversations, and discovering hard hitting facts surrounding children's neighbourhood play, we have the answer.....
The Neighbourhood Play Project is a powerful, insightful, heart-aching, and unflinching examination of why neighbourhoods have become the canary in the coal mine regarding the ways that kids play and the health of our communities.
And, we managed to have lots of fun along the way...
