Choose from a range of practical workshops, including:

Small Change™ - Dr Dawn Langley

It is not always easy to have the big vision or build a clear strategy, sometimes the issues we are dealing with are too complex and involve too many possible options. This session will explore how taking even small actions can be a powerful mechanism for helping you to think and act both practically and strategically to effect change.

Playing the long game - David Parker

Based on research with our AND Advocates, this session will look at key factors that influence success – both in developing arts-based practices and the confidence for schools to repeatedly and effectively engage with cultural partners. It will also explore how schools can strategically plan for long-term development in the arts and culture within learning

Risk, resilience, reward: harnessing the power of making mistakes - Greg Klerkx

The arts are uniquely powerful in teaching the value of taking risks, making mistakes, and learning something new and unexpected. This session, co-designed and co-led by teachers, will talk about ways to be more comfortable ‘getting it wrong’ and how to better use missteps, dead ends and outright mistakes to build confidence, resilience and cross-subject learning capability in students

Differentiating learning

AND’s SEND Network will share their expertise in differentiating learning for students. Using creativity, technology and multi-sensory approaches they will show you how to bring a space, a subject or a story to life.

Research and policy overview

Summarising recent key research reports and policy developments, and exploring what they mean for you and your school.

We will also be launching our latest learning guide for Art on the Underground - exploring a new commission by the artists Broomberg and Chanarin, with a chance to hear from one of the artists, and curator Kiera Blakey.
