Lessons of History: The power of taking control
August 22nd 2011 | 2 comment(s)

A paper written by Marc Armitage has been uploaded to the thought-crime.eu website.

The paper titled, ‘Lessons of History: The power of taking control’ was first published in the 50th anniversary edition of The International Play Associations’ magazine, Play Rights (May 2011). The article charts the development of increasing collectivisation, networking and infrastructure development of the playwork sector in the UK from 1961 (the year the IPA was formed) to the present day, and suggests some of the strengths and weaknesses encountered along the way.

Ironically, the paper was written just before the announcement of major cuts to the playwork infrastructure at national and local level and was therefore taken over by events somewhat. But the central and conclude message still holds true – if you want playwork to survive, then collectivise.

Comments and remarks on this paper would be greatly received.

It is planned for thought-crime.eu to develop into a source of old and hard to find academic work on children and young people, their play and wider social lives. To make comments on this first paper or to offer work for inclusion contact Marc at marc@marc-armitage.eu
