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.

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 will have a different creative focus:

  1. Call and response storytelling inspired by a collection, artwork or historical site – with Keith Park, Storyteller and Educator
  2. Exploring history, art, stories and sound using assistive music technology – with Gary Day, Creative Director for Garden of Music
  3. Developing and supporting creativity using multisensory objects and art – with Katharine Hoare, Schools and Young Audiences Manager  at the British Museum and Agnieszka Kolek, Specialist SEND Art teacher and Artist

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

We are pleased to offer tickets free of charge in the interest of sharing best practice. However, we will impose a £30 fee should you book a ticket but fail to attend.

This conference is generously supported by Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson
