ANDinclusive With A New Direction

© Roger Brown

Drop in for an inclusive exploration of play, process and product, and connect with special schools from across London

Schools, families and organisations are invited to join A New Direction and its network of special schools in celebrating arts and cultural education for, by, and with young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

Discover multi-sensory and multi-disciplinary ways of making and experiencing art. Explore the theme of the seen and the unseen and find out more about the processes, materials and technology our schools use to create art.

This event is programmed by A New Direction, a Tate Exchange Associate.

About A New Direction

A New Direction helps London create, think and learn.

We work to ensure that all children and young people get the most out of London’s extraordinary creative and cultural offer. Through our partnerships we create positive change across schools, education and communities to ensure that young people get the most out of London’s extraordinary creative and cultural offer.

We want London to be:

  • a city where cultural education is the best in the world
  • young people are able to access and influence culture
  • the right platforms are in place to identify and nourish young people’s creative talents

This is the right of all young Londoners – regardless of wealth, geography or luck.
