Is your organisation leading the way in family arts engagement? Could it be?
|Whether you’re leading your organisation, programming outdoor events or wanting to drive forward your marketing initiatives – there’s always more ways to grow your knowledge. We’re delighted to share a handful of upcoming learning opportunities in this Newsletter, from our Leadership Symposium to other sector conferences and more.
Join Leaders from across the UK
|Don’t miss out on your space at the National Family Arts Leadership symposium – explore how you can develop your social practice and better understand families in your community by booking your ticket here.
This year’s Family Arts Leadership Symposium, on 22 June, takes a closer look at collaboration, connection and communities with keynotes, panel discussions, workshops and opportunities to network. Have your say and discover insights, frameworks and approaches to connecting with more families in more meaningful ways.
|Last time, we asked our delegates how the event had been helpful for them. Here are just a few of the responses to what they found useful…
|‘Open discussion. Honest, frank conversation about leadership today.
Very thought provoking speakers.’
|‘The event was thoroughly insightful and fully supported my needs and thoughts towards family engagement, leadership models and implementing inclusivity into venues.’
|‘Network, open discussion, chance to share challenges with each other’
|We’re looking forward to bringing leaders from across the UK together again to help us shape the future of family arts. Will that include a representative from your organisation?
Tickets are limited, so book your space now to make sure you’re joining us for this year’s event.
Family audiences: inclusive practice for outdoor events
As we approach the warmer months, are you planning inclusive outdoor activities?
|Re-discover our 2021 Webinar with Alex Covell, Access Producer for festival.org, just in time to provide tools and tips to support your outdoor event programming.
Alex shared practical tools and information for event organisers about inclusive practices for families when working with Deaf, disabled and neurodivergent audiences and artists.
From the webinar, you will gain:
– Advice on how to make your outdoor events accessible for children and their parents/carers
– Guidance on what questions to ask, how to interrogate your practice and develop new and bespoke ways of working to improve family experiences

|Nominations open for the Kids in Museums Family Friendly Museum Award 2023
|Is your museum or gallery brilliant for families?
Kids in Museums is inviting museums, galleries, archives and heritage sites to apply for the Family Friendly Museum Award 2023.
Since 2004, the annual award has celebrated the heritage sites that are most welcoming, accessible and fun for all ages. The Family Friendly Museum Award is still the only museum award in the UK to be judged by families, meaning it’s a unique and meaningful endorsement directly from visitors.
