Workshop, Training & Development

Accessible Book and Story Festival 2024


(Fri 13 & Sat 14 Sep)

Making stories fun for everyone! Join My Kind of Book for a packed two day programme full of practical sensory story skills workshops and interesting discussions around the issues involved in creating accessible books. Be inspired by the leaders in this field: pioneers, performers and practitioners from across the UK and beyond. The festival will celebrate some of the fantastic ways books and stories are being made accessible, especially for those with additional needs. This year the focus is on sensory stories.

My Kind of Book is a not-for-profit organisation founded to research and create books for children with complex additional needs and to campaign for greater accessibility in the children’s book world. Made possible by the support of Creative Scotland.

Day 1: Fri 13 Sep
Choose from a wonderful programme including workshops by Oily Cart Theatre, sensory folksong skills, presentations on using sensory stories in parks, museums, arts venues and day care services and discussions about making picture books more accessible.

Day 2: Sat 14 Sep
Choose from an exciting programme of workshops for day two! Learn the skills to use sensory stories as an aide for literacy, relaxation and communication. Swap story ideas at shared practice sessions and help to create a manifesto for sensory stories that will encourage cultural and leisure institutions to recognise their importance as a tool for access.
