PURPOSE OF THE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES PROJECT: The main purpose of the Childhood Memories Project is to preserve and share the cultural heritage of play experienced by children throughout the world. The main products of the Project will be a permanent heritage website and a book about childhood play in Canada and other countries. Other related products will be community workshops, lectures, play festivals, television shows and public displays, and short courses to do with children's play. A major benefit will be the archival records provided for institutional special collections.
For he comes, the human child,William Butler Yeats, 1865-1939
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than he can understand.
