Communicate, create and share: imaginative approaches to interpreting museums, galleries, and heritage sites for visitors with special educational needs and disabilities

This conference explores creative approaches to interpreting museums, galleries, and heritage sites for visitors with special educational needs and disabilities.

The keynote speech will be given by Head of Learning at Camden Arts Centre, Gemma Wright. Camden Arts Centre’s education programme remains at the core of the organisation’s aim to make art inclusive and accessible for all.

For the last 15 years the Gallery has led a SEN schools project in collaboration with artists, young people, and teachers which aims to increase creative opportunities within the arts for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.

Delegates will attend three practical and interactive workshops, giving them the opportunity to consider different approaches, techniques, and resources that can be used in their own settings. Each workshop/presentation will have a different creative focus:

  1. Enhance your storytelling skills through rhythm and role, rhyme, repetition and ritual with speech and language therapist, Louise Coigley from Lis’n Tell.
  2. Use audio descriptive techniques to increase access to arts and cultural events for SEND visitors with Anne Hornsby from Mind’s Eye.
  3. Explore the rationale and mechanics of multisensory teaching for pupils with PMLD with Paul Morrow.

Once you have booked your ticket you will receive a detailed schedule.
