Inaugural Cultural Inclusion Conference - 18th October 2018 - Lyric Hammersmith

Call for submissions

We are delighted to announce the first Cultural Inclusion Conference on the 18th of October 2018 hosted at The Lyric Hammersmith.

We want this event to be a space where we celebrate the great things that are already happening around disabled young people’s access to arts and culture. As producers and consumers of the arts. As visitors to heritage and cultural venues. As employees and entrepreneurs in a thriving and diverse cultural industry. As the leaders in the stories at the centre of drama, dance, image and performance.

And we want to create spaces where we can discuss the barriers to inclusion to consider how we can work together to create the solutions to ensure cultural inclusion.

We are inviting proposals from individuals and institutions to present at the conference.

There are lots of ways to get involved and we want this to be a fully accessible event – to model cultural inclusion in practice. So if the way that you – or the young people that you work with – isn’t included on the ‘call for submissions’ form then drop us an email info@culturalinclusion.uk or give us a call on 07715 116393.

Save the date - the 18th of October 2018 - details on tickets will follow shortly.
