Event date: 11/06/2019

Matt Ritchie is the archaeologist for Scotland’s newest agency, Forestry and Land Scotland. He is coming to talk about The First Foresters – and the Mesolithic prequel Into the Wildwood (in development) – collaborating with archaeologists, ecologists, artists, designers and photographers to create a fresh take on our deep past He was also behind Outdoor Archaeological Learning, and works to promote creative archaeological visualisation. He promises an entertaining illustrated talk, looking behind the scenes of the development of this collaborative work, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions or suggest ideas. He is one of a team of national environment advisors providing advice and guidance in relation to the protection, conservation and presentation of the environment on Scotland's national forests and land. His particular interests are the methodology and visualisation of archaeological measured survey; the potential for place-based archaeology within schools and outdoor learning; and the integration of archaeology and the historic environment within wider land management and the ecosystems approach. He describes his role as to ‘top and tail’ projects: assessing cultural significance and identifying opportunities; developing and commissioning conservation work; and communicating the results to wider communities of interest. email argyllowlgroup@gmail.com for any further information

Zones of Regulation Workshop

Event date: 13/02/2020

Please come along to Dunbeg Primary School, Oban for an afternoon workshop of Zones of Regulation. The workshop will be delivered by Rebecca Blanco of Cowal Play Therapy, from 1pm-5pm. The following is a description about the workshop: The 'zones of regulation' training uses the latest discoveries in neuroscience to teach practitioners about the benefits of outdoor play and learning. The training introduces the autonomic nervous system, and teaches outdoor regulation strategies to regulate children (and the adults working with them!). The training also explores why this approach is especially useful for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties. The training gives practitioners the 'why' in terms of a rationale for outdoor play and learning as crucial for healthy brain and nervous system development, and teaches strategies to use the outdoors therapeutically. Please contact Gillian Stewart via email if you reuire any further information. argyllowlgroup@gmail.com
