Children's Rights and the Creative Arts Sector
How can creative arts practitioners that work with children support the implementation of the UNCRC? Join us to find out!
About this event
This year Scotland will incorporate children’s human rights as outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into Scots law.
The aim of this event, in partnership with Children’s Parliament and Youth Theatre Arts Scotland, is to bring together practitioners in children’s human rights and Creative Arts to consider, at this opportune moment, how we can draw connections between these two important fields of practice and to consider the significance of children’s human rights for the field of Creative Arts.
The webinar will comprise a short introduction to the event and the Year of Childhood, an input from each of the three panellists, and a facilitated Q&A session with input from the audience.
We are delighted to be joined by
Virginia Radcliffe, Artistic Director/Chief Executive at Licketyspit
Rebekah Corbett, Community Arts Coordinator at PEEK Project
Helen Mill, Executive Director at The Village Storytelling Centre
The webinar will be facilitated by Dr Susan Elsley, an independent writer and policy analyst on children’s human rights. Susan is Chairperson of Craigmillar Literacy Trust, and previously Chair of Together (Scottish Alliance for Children’s Rights). She has been a trustee of Play Scotland, and many other charities.
This webinar will be hosted live on Zoom.
