This network will be a chance to be inspired and connect with other SEND settings and partners from across the East Midlands who advocate for creative and cultural learning opportunities for children and young people.

This event will include the following:

  • Experienced visual artist Sian W Taylor will give a presentation and give you lots of ideas and inspiration to take back into school to help your planning for the year ahead.
  • Sian W Taylor specialises in running visual art and theatre workshops that help find ways of broadening the learning experiences of children and young people. She celebrates how creativity can be a wonderful vehicle for empowerment, working alongside children, young people and families with PMLD, Autism, Neurodiverse and Deaf blind young people to challenge, engage and create.
  • Her work includes drawing, sculpture, installations, working with performance, literacy, scriptwriting, puppet making, costume and theatre props. These are just a few ways in which she helps children, young people and adults to open the door and allow imagination & creativity to come to life.
  • Working with Attenborough Arts, Nottingham Contemporary, New Arts Exchange, Lakeside Arts Centre, Stan’s Cafe, The Mighty Creatives, Creative Partnerships, The British Art Show, Museums & Galleries across the country plus many schools  & community groups, Sian tries to foster curiosity, imagination, investigation, and collaboration.

As an experienced Arts Award advisor Sian will also talk through some top tips and advice on how to build Arts Award into projects.

  • Sinfonia Viva will offer an inspiring insight into their work and projects with special schools and talk about the impact this work has on the children and young people they work with
  • An opportunity to share practice and ideas with other SEND schools from across the region and hear what they are planning for the year ahead
