PARK AND DARE THEATRE, Station Rd, Treorchy CF42 6NL

Monday 20th February 10am – 1pm (FREE)

This three-hour interactive workshop will share the findings of a major research project commissioned by Arts Connect that provides insight into perceived and actual barriers that prevent families with little or no engagement with the arts attending its venues.

The session will also explore insight from the successful Sherman 5 project designed to give people from Community First areas who have never attended a performance at the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff a chance to so.

The workshop will explore:
• developing family friendly systems
• actual and perceived barriers to attendance
• reducing risks
• the different elements that make up the family experience
• how to deal with difficult types of scenario
• practical steps that can be put in place to become more family friendly
• how to develop plans for action

The session will give participants the practical information and skills to understanding what different types of families need from their visit and how to engage with them concentrating on hard to reach families and particularly those families with little or no engagement with the arts.
