Meet Me @ Mahogany: What Can We Learn From Working In SEND Settings?

Meet Me @ Mahogany, our virtual open house series, returns...

Wednesday 24th January 2024
18:00 - 19:30

In October 2022, Mahogany Opera embarked on a 10 month residency at Sandgate School in Kendal, creating a brand new Snappy Opera with and for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Roll Up! brought together the entire school community for this creative endeavour, which proved valuable and rewarding for all of the pupils and teachers involved – but what did the creative team learn from the process of working in this way?

In our latest Meet Me @ Mahogany event, we will explore what artists and creative organisations can learn from working in a SEND setting. Why is exploring the fundamentals of play so important? What happens when we treat everyone in a space as an artist? And how can these things strengthen our approach to collaborative devising in other settings and our wider work?

Speakers will include Claire Eliza Willoughby and Jack McNeill, who both helped to create Roll Up!, as well as composer, musician & animateur Shiori Usui and composer, cellist and performance artist Greg Sinclair.

All Meet Me @ Mahogany events are FREE to attend. The discussion will take place in English on Zoom. It will be BSL-interpreted and live-captioned. Please register onTicket Source to receive the Zoom link for the event. We hope to see you there.

Meet Me @Mahogany is Mahogany Opera’s virtual Open House series, where we share insights and ideas around what we do and how we do it, connecting people to our creative practice. For more details, or to catch up on previous discussions, visit the Meet Me @ Mahogany overview page.
