Inclusive Minds "What About Me?" event coming to the Imagine Children's Festival, Southbank Centre, London on 21st February 2014

The Imagine Children's Festival. The South Bank comes alive with stories and fun!

Our good friends over at Inclusive Minds have been commissioned to run an event at London's Southbank Centre as part of this year's Imagine Children's Festival.

The one-day event entitled "What About Me?" is focused on making children's books truly inclusive of ALL children, and giving children a real voice within children's books. 

It will be a free and accessible event with activities to suit every child's needs and interests, including sensory activity and signed poetry. We will be welcoming a host of children's book creators to the event to meet children, discuss ideas, take part in workshops and work with children to 're-imagine' book covers and stories, to make sure all children really are included in books. 

The full programme can be found on the Inclusive Minds website.

The event will end with a panel discussion looking at how 'normal' is presented in children's books, and what messages this gives to children about society.

Taking place on Friday 21st February 2014 at London's Southbank Centre, it's a fabulous chance to find out more about inclusive children's books.
