Hollie Witton is speaking at the Creative Museums Summit 2024 :

Celebrating SEND Learners’ Creativity

Children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) express their creativity in many ways. The learning and enjoyment often comes with sensory engagement in the process of creating rather than the final outcome. Hear from the National Maritime Museum and Willow Dene Special school about how they worked together creatively to capture learners’ responses to collections and themes and make them visible in Museum spaces including a permanent presence in the Museum’s award-winning playground. Hear about the impact and legacy this has had for local SEND families and both institutions.
