‘Engaging the Senses’, is a symposium and gathering with conversation, demonstrations, and playtime workshops for both parents and arts, healthcare and early years professionals interested in exploring multi-sensory, creative play through the arts for very young children with complex needs.
‘Engaging the Senses’ is informed by The Civic’s current exploration and development in this area of work in South Dublin County Council with outcomes and learning from Helium Arts’ Pop Up Picnic and Anna Newell’s ‘Sing Me to The Sea’, both multi-sensory performance projects for children with complex needs.
Who is this symposium for? Artists, Health professionals / carers; Early years professionals; Parents; Arts Centre’s and Children’s Cultural Institutions.
‘This should be everywhere – all of our children should get to experience this.’
