Inclusive Practice for families in Outdoor Arts and Events
Thank you to those who attended and took part in our recent webinar on inclusive practice for families in outdoor arts and events.
In this webinar, Alex Covell, Access Producer for FESTIVAL.ORG, shared practical tools and information for event organisers about 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 explored this as a case study for future events and shared examples of how the festival trialled and adapted new ways to build accessible practice within the identity of their work.
From the webinar, you will gain:
- Practical advice on how to make your outdoor events accessible for children and their parents/carers
- Guidance on what questions to ask, how to interrogate your practice and develop new and bespoke ways of working to improve family experiences
