Katy Milne, Creative Director is excited to be part of this year’s annual CBNE conference ‘Imagine If...’  The conference, organised by Culture Bridge North East, is held each year and brings together delegates from the education and culture sector to explore key themes.  The conference includes invited keynote speakers and workshops that challenge ways of thinking and explore new ideas.

The 2020 conference will cover new ground as it moves online, exploring a different approach in delivery as it reflects upon and questions education and culture in the current climate.  “Imagine If will explore ways in which creative arts and cultural experiences might support children and young people to process, share their experiences and recover from the impacts of the global COVID-19 crisis, and to move forwards into a new normal.”

Katy, Creative Director at Greenfield Arts is working alongside and presenting with Lorraine Coghill, Science Outreach Coordinator at Durham University.  Katy and Lorraine share skills that create and develop opportunities for people to explore, enquire and engage others in meaningful learning.  Their online session will bring together their joint and separate creative projects to explore new ways to go forward.  They will be exploring the importance and new shape of self-led learning, its place in emerging from lockdown and imagining new learning futures.

The conference will, this year, be global in its reach and will be a timely resource for creatives and educators looking forward.  To be a delegate at this valuable conference contact Culture Bridge North East by emailing
