A major cross-artform event exploring age, diversity and inclusion in family arts.

Chief Executive of Arts Council England, Darren Henley will join us to welcome arts professionals from across the UK to learn and share best practice in working with families.

Further programme details to be released soon but highlights will include:

  • UK & international perspectives on welcoming older people as part of the family experience
  • New insights on arts-based approaches to inclusion and diversity
  • Findings from new research on family audiences and participation from Arts Council England and others
  • Exciting new developments announced on the Family Arts Campaigns plans to support the sector

So many interesting things: hearing about a range of offers for families was very useful.
It allowed time to think and understand how families perceive our offer lots of food for thought.
I will keep this inspiration with me when looking at my own upcoming collaborations.

York Islamic Art Circle

Tuesday 31st January 2017

6-30pm-8:00pm

Bowland Auditorium (University of York)

You can get your free ticket at www.york.ac.uk/tickets

Dream manuals, talismanic shirts, horoscopic charts and magico-medicinal bowls testify to the changing roles of divinatory practices within Islamic traditions from the medieval period to the present day. Despite critical attitudes and bans, in fact, various techniques to foretell the future and influence daily events were used by elites and ordinary people alike in order to address all sort of concerns. Dreams, Dice and Divination: Islamic Art and the Supernatural will explore the themes and debates surrounding these common yet controversial arts through the lens of art and material culture.

Francesa Leoni is the Yousef Jamrel curator of Islamic Art at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Francesa is the curator of their current exhibition "Power and Protection:IslamicArt and the Supernatural" showing until 20th January 2017.
