Beyond Blocks and Barriers: helping to solve complex problems + build human connection through play.  

Join us for a hands-on session learning about how Lego Serious Play and other play-based ways of going about our serious-pants adult days can improve our wellbeing, help solve complex problems and build human connection. We’d love you to accept the invitation to come play!

This session has been developed in response to the ongoing need for artists, craftspeople, designers – and really everyone! – to nurture and experiment with different practices and processes in support of their ongoing personal well-being. This theme is one of three core pillars to the INFORM Professional Development program – Artist’s Personal Well-being, Sustainable Practice and Communication Development – we are excited to share this evolution with you to continue to empower artists, craftspeople and designers to build meaningful and sustainable careers.

Guildhouse INFORM Professional Development Program is supported by our valued ongoing partnership with the University of South Australia, providing an intersectional place and space for communities to connect, gather and be inspired.

About the Presenter

Erin Faehrmann is the Chief Play Officer at Lead With Play, and a well-seasoned business manager. After 15+ years of working in highly technical organisations with lots of serious-pants adults Erin took a 5 year segway to lead a youth wellbeing non-profit. That experience gave her access to the science of how we flourish as humans, and sparked her passion for finding more playful ways to solve the complex problems we former-kids (aka adults) face in our lives, families, workplaces and communities.
