Reclaiming Voices: Empowering Child’s Agency and Rights
This project aims to create spaces for children's emerging thoughts and ideas to be heard, fostered, and incorporated into their surrounding worlds. In working collaboratively with the children, the notion of sharing ideas is encouraged and through engaging in democratic conversations we worked with questions, such as, who can have ideas and where do ideas come from to explore the notion of the individual in a plural world. To cultivate a culture where children and educators are actively participating in reciprocal listening to each other's ideas. By embracing singularity and acknowledging the rights of the child, we can begin to work to unsilence the silenced.
