Free webinar: Inclusive Practice for families in Outdoor Arts and Events


Are you keen to learn more about improving inclusivity when planning outdoor arts events for families?

Then register for our free training webinar on Tuesday 13th July, 10.30am – 12.30pm – Alex Covell, Access Producer for FESTIVAL.ORG, will share practical tools and information for event organisers to find inclusive practices for families when working with Deaf, disabled and neurodivergent audiences and artists.

Following the successful experience of a COVID-secure 2020 edition of Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, Alex will offer this as a case study for future events and share how they pro-actively trialled and adapted new ways to build accessible practice within the identity of their work.

This webinar offers a timely opportunity to reflect on how to ensure that returning to live events is an inclusive experience.
