Speakers will urge adults to make play a priority

Staff writerMarch 30, 2014 

Douglas Anderson, a professor of philosophy at Southern Illinois University, will present “Making Play Possible” Monday at the University of Puget Sound.

Anderson argues that play has been dying in American culture. In his talk, he will explore ways in which adults can transform their cultural habits to make play, and especially movement play, a more central part of their daily lives.

The program will begin at 7 p.m. in the Tahoma Room of Commencement Hall.

A related program will be offered April 22. Staffers from the Tacoma Children’s Museum will present “Celebrating the Power of Play in the Lifelong Journey of Learning.” The program will be from 4-6 p.m. in Rausch Auditorium on the UPS campus.

Both events are free and open to the public. Parking is best at the field house and stadium parking lot at North 11th St and Union.
