About this Event

Using art pedagogies to explore children’s perspectives: the ‘Visualising Opportunities: Inclusion for Children, Education and Society’ (Voices_Ed) Project

For the project, children produced and annotated photographs that they felt represented inclusion or exclusion which were ‘artified’ to anonymise them. They were then shared with other children and teachers within school workshops, and with the general public in an exhibition at TATE Liverpool in June 2018 to facilitate discussions about experiences of social belonging and educational inclusion. During 2020 we worked with a number of schools to develop a school resource which can be used by practitioners to explore children’s concerns and worries, which is so vital at the moment with the risks to mental health and wellbeing created within the pandemic.

Our intention in undertaking this work is to facilitate active engagement from individuals of all ages within the community so that their ‘voices’, perspectives and experiences might be acknowledged and shared in respectful ways. In presenting our work to date, we hope to offer innovative opportunities for discourse by encouraging the often-unheard views and experiences of children and young people, their teachers and parents. The presentation will share some of our materials and findings in a way which can then be used by academics with their own students and practitioners with their pupils.

This seminar will be presented by Virginia Kay and Clare Woolhouse .

Mrs Virginia Kay is an early career researcher who leads the National Award for SEN Coordination at Edge Hill University which involves over 100 SENCOs across England per year.
