Save the date and call out for sessions

Our annual conference brings together delegates from the education and culture sectors to explore a key theme each year. Through a mixture of keynote speakers and interactive workshops, we aim for delegates to feel: 

  • Inspired to try something new 
  • Challenged to take creative risks that respond to today’s societal issues facing children and young people. 
  • They have the opportunity to realise the potential of creative learning and to respond to today’s urgent issues.  
  • Help change the lives of the next generation.  
  • Able to engage in collaborative learning, forward-planning and learn from examples of positive partnership. 
  • They have the space to turn theoretical conversation into concrete action. 
  • Engaged on a practical, interactive level. 
  • They have current education and culture sector knowledge to take their direct action to the next level. 

Imagine If… 2022 will explore how cultural education can ensure that each child and young person has access to arts and culture today and every day. It will be an opportunity to engage in cross-sector open conversation that takes a deep-dive into current issues faced by children and young people. These include: 

  • SEND and designing inclusive, creative learning 
  • LGBTQ+ education, opportunity and community 
  • Climate change and the climate crisis 
  • Child poverty and the effects of class inequality 
  • Creative careers and cultural accessibility   

Imagine If…2022 will be a space to move from theoretical conversation to concrete action to help present and future generations. 

This year, Imagine If… will be a week of digital keynote speeches and interactive workshops. There will be further opportunities throughout November-December to engage in regional, in-person CPD and networking events, all under the Imagine If… banner. Through our booking process, we aim to ensure a 50/50 mix of delegates from the education and culture sectors.  

We want this conference to be exciting, packed full of interaction and engagement. Therefore, all sessions must have an element of practicality.
