FLOW is a festival of bold and imaginative arts and culture made with, by and for Children in Birmingham and Sandwell, produced and curated by The Parakeet for the Birmingham 2022 Festival. 

 

Childhood Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow an exploration of how academia can shape how we view, think about, and plan for childhood today and in the future while appreciating where we have come from. 

 

We are pleased to announce an event to bring the amazing research happening around children and childhood to a wider audience through a series of Pecha Kucha-style presentations for FLOW Children's Biennial curated by Andrea Davies. 

 

You will hear presenters from all disciplines including health, education, geography, history, art and play work. 

 

Presenters will share how their research can be used and implemented by the general public including parents, teachers, and community leaders. The Pecha Kucha style calls for a 10-minute presentation where presenters show 20 slides and talk about each slide for roughly 30 seconds in an easy-to-follow, conversational style.
