Diversity in Heritage Group (DHG) London training session: Sensory Stories

Friday 27th March 2015


The London Programme of the Diversity Heritage Group (DHG) has over 270 members working in the heritage and museum sectors and holds themed meetings every 6 weeks with approximately 25-30 members attending each time.

A sensory story partners concise text with strong sensory stimuli to convey a narrative. Sensory stories are fun for anyone, but have particular benefits for individuals with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities, Autism or Sensory Processing Issues, or Learning Disabilities.

Jo Grace of Sensory Stories,  is offering DHG a day of activities. Jo leads a lot of training, has recently written a ground-breaking book on working with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) children and adults, and has worked with museums and galleries.

As a massive favour Jo will be leading the training free of charge for DHG members, but a donation from each attendee of £5-10 (on the day) to cover travel (from Cornwall) and accomodation is requested.

Please note this training will only take place if  organiser Poppy Szaybo get sa minimum of 12 participants - it's a fantastic opportunity and would normally cost £600 + travel and accomodation.

The training will take place at the National Portrait Gallery on Friday 27th March (times to be confirmed) hosted by Rosie Burley.
