The Power of Revolutionary Play – Lois Holzman, TEDxNavesink, May 10, 2014
- These are important issues raised in Lois’ talk – issues about play being a collective, dialectical, and dialogic activity improvised in human interaction…
- I watched your TEDxNavesink presentation. Brilliant and thought-provoking!
- Great TEDx, Lois! Really nice.
- What I think revolutionary play is—taking what there is and making something new, doing what we do not know how to do, relating as who we are/other than who we are at the same time — is a cultural-historical activity that creates development. I appreciated that relating what there is and making something new emergies at the same time. We’re relating who we are and other-than-who-we-are at the same time. This simultaneous play-as-revolutionary is not first this and then that, as if between two unique essences, but rather this through that – emerging simultaneously within playful activity. Lois…playing with these notions, I found myself stimulated by your commentary…Thanks for a fascinating revolutionary playful formation.
- I love, love it and am going to use it in my classes! Great work!
- YES, YES, YES! SO GOOOD! Professional. Profound. Powerful.
- Loved your TEDx talk, Lois! I’ll be watching it tomorrow with my Community Play team. It will be the launching point for a series of professional development workshops I’m leading at UNC-G called Working at Play and Playing at Work. All power to the play revolutionaries! All power to the people becoming!
- Terrific talk! I’ve shared it with my department.
