The Sound Connections team have put together a fantastic day a day of workshops and discussions on the themes of Early Years, Youth Voice and Social Justice.
The day offers a wide range of discussions and practical workshops touching on topics like inclusive engagement with parents and carers, recruiting young trustees and mental health work with young people.
The event also includes a keynote from artist Jess Thom who will speak about how she turned her disability into an art form.
Putting the Social Model at the heart of your planning
We are delighted to be delivering a workshop looking at the practicalities of using the Social Model of Disability when designing and planning events & programmes.
This will include considering how applying the Social Model affects logistics, an anticipatory approach to access and making the most of access as an opportunity rather than a challenge.
We will also talk participants through applying these ideas of the Aesthetics of Access to their own work.
The session will be led by Douglas Noble and Daryl Beeton from Drake Music.
