Accessible creative resources, activities, and ideas for students & teachers

Along with a schedule of events for students, teachers and the cultural sector, we are extending an invitation to all schools to take part in self-directed activity. Our network and festival are open to all specialist settings and SENDCOs and we support collaborations of all kinds: school visits, workshops, showcases and online sharing.

Our theme is See Me, Hear Me. What does this mean to you? Is it about vision, justice, giving a voice to those who are not always heard?

This resource offers some ideas - developed and tested by our network - for you to try in the classroom or at home and share beyond it in whatever way you like. They are budget-friendly, using the ideas, skills and materials you already have!

Have fun with them and share your creations in image or sound.

Dive into our creative prompt and create an access rider, hosted on 64 Million Artists. We’re told that rockstars and celebrities have riders. Cookie dough ice cream on the tour bus, dill pickles and red licorice in the green room. Why not? And doesn’t everyone work better when their needs are respected and supported? An access rider captures information about someone’s access and needs, providing a considered and detailed list of what might be needed to support someone without assumptions and guess work.
