In June, Autograph celebrated the third birthday of our Family SEND programme which offers creative workshops devised and led by artist Katriona Beales to families with a child/children with complex needs or SEND (special educational needs and disabilities).
At our celebration event, families were invited to come together to play, create and dance, with live music from Solid Steel Band and food provided by Petté Street Food. Keep scrolling to see images capturing the day’s fun, alongside a film produced by Revell Dixon.
The Family SEND programme was originally launched in May 2019 as just one of many outcomes of Autograph’s ongoing involvement in the radical UK-wide EXPLORERS project, highlighting the extraordinary contribution neurodiverse people make to art and culture. In the years since the launch, we have doubled our workshop capacity to better meet demand, and outmanoeuvred the pandemic by repurposing the programme during lockdown, to deliver 80 art kits to families across London.
