The Out of the Box festival blog is an opportunity for children, parents, carers and teachers to narrate and critique their festival experiences. Of particular interest is the cultural dialogue between children and adults as they engage in rich meaningful discussions centred on all things Out of the Box.
In the lead up to the event, content about classroom and family preparation to attend the festival will be explored, with bloggers also offering practical information about being at the festival. Over the course of the week, aesthetic responses to festival events will unfold as the magic of Out of the Box is ‘blogged’ - captured through tools such as mobile phones, digital photos, drawings and social networking.
We look forward to seeing how our bloggers are celebrating imagination, curiosity and serious fun at Out of the Box!
