For anyone interested in encouraging more play in the life of their child, the Cultural Wellness and Family Enrichment Center will be hosting a viewing of the film “Where Do the Children Play?” on Wednesday, Aug. 20, at Pomegranate Café in Ahwatukee Foothills.

The screening will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $10. That price includes snacks, dessert and a drink from Pomegranate Café. Seating is limited, and residents who are interested in attending should RSVP at pomegranatecafe.com/blog.

“Where Do the Children Play?” was released in 2008; the documentary focuses on the importance of kids getting creative play and gives examples of early childhood and the lack of play for kids today.

Those who attend the screening will view the one-hour film followed by a discussion led by Vanessa Chamberlain, director of the Cultural Wellness and Family Enrichment Center.

The Cultural Wellness Center is a nonprofit through Prescott College that provides programming and training for teens, parents, educators and families. The center has several programs planned for the fall and is working on raising fund to open its own facility.

This viewing is the first of a series focused on the issue of play. Screenings of “The Race to Nowhere” and “War on Kids” will be scheduled for later in the year. For more information on this and future screenings, call (602) 432-3707 or email info@culturalwellness.org.
