Kids at Play: The Importance of Creativity in Child Development @ Museum Of Contemporary Art Jacksonville
Aug 25 @ 1:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Play is essential to development because it contributes to the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of children. It has been recognized by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights as a right of every child. Over the past several years, we’ve seen the arts cuts from school curriculum as well as from state and city funding. The arts don’t merely develop a child’s creativity — the skills they learn from the arts spill over into academic achievement. Join us as we hear from local leaders on play and its impact on a child’s development.  Thanks to the experts joining us to discuss child development:  • Jackie Cornelius, retired principal for Douglas Anderson School of the Arts • Caitlin Doherty, Director for MOCA Jacksonville• Jenny Lee Corvo, Researcher with specialties in neuroscience and psychology • Allison Galloway-Gonzalez, Chief Program Officer for Cathedral Arts Project • Jason Peoples, Executive Director for the Jacksonville Arts & Music School • Joseph Peppers, CEO for Kids Hope Alliance • Moderated by Karen Feagins, Vice President for Client and Community Relations for PNC Bank
