Taking place from 20–24 June 2022, this year’s festival promises to be bigger and better than ever. For the first time we will be delivering a hybrid of activities across a number of schools, cultural venues, and online, all focused on the theme of Unity. Teachers and students involved in our SEND Network will come together with a range of artists and arts organisations to create new artwork and performances which will be showcased throughout the festival week, both in-person and digitally.
