Michael M and Phaedra welcome special guest Gwen Gordon of Seriously, the Movie for this week’s episode focusing intently on play. From inventing a nose flute for Snuffleupagus to a basketball court for Slimy the worm, Gwen gained experience early on in applying creativity and innovation in a playful, fun and extremely rapid way. Focused now on the fundraising for a feature length film and then following up with a series called “Now Playing:” — at work, at home, at school, for life (health and wellness), for the future (innovation & creativity) and for change (social justice), Gwen shares with Phaedra and Michael her reasons, hopes and dreams for this project. We were impressed, and think you will be too!
If you want to help with the Kickstarter project, please dial on over to see Gwen and her wonderpup Garbonzo, where they are Occupying Kickstarter until they raise the necessary funds to get this important work off the ground.
Also don’t forget that September 18th is “Dance where you are” day, and you can win fabulous prizes from taking part in your own playspark.
