Inclusive Education in the Arts – Best Practice Event

About the Event

Thank you to everyone who participated and helped make this event as a success. In particular we'd like to thank the event speakers from various departments, the Arts Faculty, as well as the Dean of Students Office. In addition, we're grateful for the over 60 attendees, consisting of both staff and students, who asked questions, discussed their experiences, and shared their ideas.

As an opportunity for departmental staff to share their inclusive education approaches, this event allowed attendees to take stock of achievements, challenges, and lessons learnt in order to be prepared for future funding applications.

Please find the event programme and poster below. A report summarising the events' key take-aways will be circulated in due course.
