Join us as we present the outcomes of our collaborative kinaesthetic and multi-sensory artist residencies that support children’s connections with the world through art.
The symposium will present the findings of the two year Test and Explore Paul Hamlyn Funded research project, Unlocking the World Through Art: A Sensory Atelier. Attenborough Arts Centre partnered with two SEN schools, Ellesmere College and Ashmount School to address the physical and curricular barriers to the arts and learning.
The project created a space and process for children with a spectrum of learning difficulties, communication disorders and disabilities within the classroom and at Attenborough Arts Centre.
This is a dynamic and creative approach for delivering the changing curriculum through the arts referencing the Reggio Emilia Atelier method and developing new ways of measuring learning and engagement for children with SEND.
