Headway Arts

North North Symposium

We are thrilled to a be hosting a national symposium bringing together an exciting collaboration of stakeholders from within the arts community with artists, arts organisations and venues coming together for discussions, critical conversations and debate.

The North North Symposium will look at themes such as:

- What does quality mean for learning disabled artists?

- How can the status of artists who are learning disabled be raised?

- What can we do together to strengthen this sector?

Guest speakers:

Sarah Watson (Carousel, Oska Bright International Film Festival, South Bank Centre)

Gus Garside (Carousel, National Co-ordinator Creative Minds)

Geof Keys (Queens Hall Hexham)

Prism Arts (Carlisle)

During the day you will hear from a number of guest speakers and innovators who will question the concept of quality, why it matters and how we get it out there. There will be a performance and critical evaluation from Headway Arts Inclusive Theatre Co. and lots of teas and coffees to keep you going!

The day will run from 10am- 3.30pm with a networking lunch. If you would like to attend free tickets are available through the Eventbrite website.
