  • Claire Evans (University of Leeds)
  • Catherine Harris (Communication Matters)
Summary
  • Meet at 9am in the Centenary Suite, Parkinson (off exhibition hall); sessions starts at 9.30am in the Art Gallery, Parkinson (off exhibition hall).

Leeds University has a dynamic relationship with the Arts and has the enviable facility of an Art Gallery on site which is open to the public.

In collaboration with the Education Department of the University, this session will aim to explore 'Creative Communication' through an interactive workshop including the development of Art through alternative access. Smartbox have kindly agreed to provide the equipment and support the facilitator, Claire Evans, with eye-gaze access. Work which is produced in the workshop may then be put on show as part of the gallery exhibition.

This session is suitable for people who use AAC and any others who would like to participate. Numbers are limited, so please sign up on the Communication Matters stand in Parkinson Hall by 6pm on Monday 16th September.

Communication Matters has decided to donate a trophy for Creativity in memory of Alan Martin who sadly died last year. This year it will be awarded for the most inspiring piece created within this workshop and will be presented at the closing session of Conference. You can see the trophy on the Communication Matters stand in the exhibition hall.
