This conference will provide a space for attendees to consider approaches and develop ideas around the nature and value of cultural and artistic engagement for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Join us for a day of talks, workshops, networking and discussion sessions to explore, stretch and question creative approaches to engaging children with SEND.

This year’s presenters were selected by our panel from an open submission process. We sought proposals that showed innovative practice in regard to engaging children with SEND, with particular focus given to this year’s three key themes:

– Mental health and wellbeing
– Autism
– Evaluation/legacy

There will be a range of presentations and workshops delivered by SEND teachers, artist educators, disability specialists and gallery and museum professionals.

Attendees will explore their own creativity and share ideas and experiences while taking part and contributing to talks, roundtable discussions and practical workshops.

This conference is generously supported by Robin Hambro.
