KID ZONE!

Feel like wandering around the Bookfair without your kid(s)? Are they itching for some games, fun activities and snacks? Alternatively, do you guys need a quiet space to chill out? Bring your kid(s) to the Kid Zone for tons of radical childcare fun! There will be outdoor games, a craft/quiet room and fun activities for any interested kids. Parents welcome!

Kid Zone is open 10 am until 5 pm on Saturday (May 21) and Sunday (May 22). The entrance to the Kid Zone is at the far end of the big room at CEDA (2515 Delisle), on the right side of the stage (Café Mozaik). Make sure to sign in your kid(s) before you drop them off!

Philosophy is child’s play! (fr.)
1pm-2:45 pm, Sunday May 22
CEDA — Room 125

This two-part workshop is designed for children and teens aged 9-15 as well as their parents and other curious people. The first part, “Anti-Sophist Kung Fu,” is a practical session for 9-15 year-olds to help them fight against demagogy and to knock out the arguments of those who seek to manipulate us. The second part — “Developing Critical Thinking in Children” — is a space for reflection and sharing, designed for parents seeking examples of philosophy applied to children’s daily lives, as well as suggestions for further reading. Sharing experiences is encouraged!

Facilitated by Louise Caroline Bergeron, Mubeenah Mughal and Marike Reid-Gaudet.
