A growing network of creative champions working with Deaf, disabled & neurodivergent children across London
Being a creative subject teacher in a SEND setting or a SENDCo in a mainstream school can be isolating. You are often a department of one. Opportunities to share practice, seek advice, and develop relationships with other creative subject teachers can often be limited.
A New Direction’s I Am network provides a way of sharing good practices with other educators working in a range of SEND settings across London. The Network meets twice a term over the academic year in cultural venues across London. Last academic year we were hosted by The October Gallery, The National Theatre, Graeae Theatre Company, The Tate Modern, Roundhouse and Somerset House.
Working together to improve creative and cultural opportunities for children and young people who are Deaf, disabled, and neurodivergent, the network is a great opportunity to learn from your peers and find out more about London’s cultural sector.
The Network has grown to more than 50 members and is now a flagship for arts and creativity for children and young people who are Deaf, disabled, and neurodivergent.
