The Engage Conference 2019, Unlocking Culture: an entitlement for children and young people, will take place on 5–6 November 2019 at Northumbria University, Newcastle and Gateshead.
The conference will examine the benefits and challenges of young people’s access to the arts, exploring best practice, partnerships and policies from the sector.
The arts and culture provide a lens through which children and young people develop their understanding of themselves and the wider world. It creates a space for children and young people to shape their thoughts, feelings and their futures. Access to the arts is a fundamental human right, and yet many children and young people, particularly those who are most marginalised, do not have this opportunity. With this in mind the Engage Conference 2019 draws its inspiration from City of Dreams, an exciting ten-year programme which gives every child and young person in Newcastle and Gateshead access to arts and culture.
