We began to think about this project after workshops in Reggio Emilia relating to their wn project ' A Festive Thought', about which you can read in their publiication here:

We found that the workshop excited participants - firstly from the International Reggio Network, and later on, our UK Network , in much debate about meaning-making, cultural meanings, different perspectives, the richness and diversity was fascinating, as was the level of fun and engagement as adults worked and later discussed.
We figured that this could be a very enlivening focus for the educators of centres in our network, and with their groups of children as they found new ways to work and provoke ideas, debate and expression.
We have been gathering papers and references which participants could find useful - log in to read , and do suggest your own to add to the collection.
