Diversity, Inclusivity and Equality through Education First Widening Participation in Arts Education Conference is Friday, 15th July 2016, University of Brighton, Brighton, UK. Does society still believe in the value of Art, Design and the creative industries? Is Art and Design seen as exclusive, concerned only with Galleries and the ‘isms’ – or does it offer inclusive opportunities to a diversity of learners from a range of contexts and skill sets? Changes in quality assurance, school curriculum, legislation and funding as well as challenges in society and culture all highlight the need to explore questions of inclusivity and the development of new methods of teaching to push boundaries to inspire young people.
