Abstract


This paper presents a conversation between a group of educators employed at the University of Victoria's Child Care Services (Terry Wilson, Deanna Elliot, Diana Foreland, and Teresa Dixon) conducted by interviewer Vanessa Clark, assisted by Narda Nelson. Throughout this dialogue, these educators reflect on their year’s collaboration working with paint and water as part of a multi-site inquiry conducted over a period of three years. They discuss themes of rethinking with respect to their respective practices, the challenges and struggles associated with the project, and the importance of working together as a team.
