Exploring the value of arts and culture for families



“It brought me fresh enthusiasm for the sector I work in and I left buzzing with ideas” – delegate, Family Arts Conference 2017

The UK’s largest family arts and culture conference will explore the value of family engagement and how we can communicate that value to families, funders and the wider cultural sector.

This event will bring creative professionals together to explore the benefits and challenges of planning, delivering and monitoring accessible and engaging intergenerational cultural opportunities for families.

Join us for a full day of lively discussion, practical seminars, informative key-notes and opportunities to discuss, share and learn from successful family arts interventions.

  •        Creating intergenerational experiences for older and younger audiences
  •        Building interactive experiences for parents and early years
  •        World café style workshops to invite all participants to input into and drive forward our national Campaign
  •        Reaching diverse families who are hard to reach
