Building Understandings Conference

Glenside Campus
Blackberry Hill, Stapleton, Bristol, BS16 1DD
The University of West England based in Bristol would like to invite disabled children, young people, their parents and carers (we would like to include people with physical, sensory and cognitive impairments as well as those people with mental health issues), as well as activists and academics in the field of disability studies and childhood studies to present at and to attend the event. This year's conference theme is 'Building Understandings'. We're inviting contributors to talk about changes in the lives of children, young people and their families and suggest that you might like to address some of the following questions. How can we build understanding between:
  • Children and professionals?
  • Parents and professionals?
  • Parents and children?
  • Professionals and professionals?
  • Parents and parents?
  • Children and children?
It is a 2 day event occuring on 10th and 11th June 2014 Day one will include accessible presentations and discussion points as well as opportunities to take part in workshop activities (more details to follow). Day two will include more formal presentations, but we will particularly welcome presentations or discussion papers that tell a story, share a skill, some information or research in ways that try to be as accessible and creative as possible - for example, that use a range of presentations styles and media including photography, video and artwork.
