Exploring the benefits of arts-based approaches on children and families through Licketysspits Theatre Company, their partners and other specialists.
Licketyspit has been working with partners Stepping Stones for Families, Action for Children and Glasgow City Council’s Public Social Partnership (PSP) to deliver its DRAMATIKA Glasgow pilot programme, LicketyLeap and Porridge & Play, with support from Scottish Government. Between August 2015 and March 2016 it worked intensively with nurseries, children and families across Glasgow to deliver its innovative drama-based programme.
This event will explore the experience and findings of Licketyspit’s work as well as provide an opportunity for practitioners, managers and policy makers to consider more widely the benefits and challenges of using arts-based approaches with children and families.
