The Manchester Children’s Book Festival offers a full, two-day programme of masterclass workshops, seminars, talks and panel discussions. 'Survive and Subvert' is suitable for education professionals from all levels and subject backgrounds. Conference sessions, and a ‘Survival Toolkit’ containing ideas, discussion papers, case-studies and suggested reading, will inspire, inflame passions and will provide practical ideas and suggestions to help maintain passion and creativity, whatever your position or subject area.
The days will feature keynote speeches from poets and educators Mandy Coe and Michael Rosen, and their special guest educational development expert Mick Waters, on the theme of developing cutting-edge approaches to maintaining passionate and positive creativity in the class room in the face of funding cuts. Come along, join the debate and take part in a vibrant programme of workshops and presentations by a distinguished team of children’s writers, researchers and artists.
