Practical ideas from diverse experts to develop enriching and inclusive practices in education settings.


We all have culture and all culture is worthy of celebration. As educators, how are we culturally responsive to our students? How do we ensure we give voice to all cultures represented in our shared spaces.

This event will explore the link between culture and identity in schools and communities. It will focus on how exposure to and engagement with local, national and international culture has the potential to enrich students’ learning and improve their life chances.

This event will challenge, inform and inspire delegates with knowledge and ideas from a range of powerful voices in our community which can be used back in the classroom and beyond to promote quality teaching and a rich and inclusive curriculum.

The evening event will offer an opportunity to network and will include speakers and performances and a chance to be creative.
