What is a Sandpit? Sandpits are interactive workshops which involve a small group of researchers,a team of subject experts, and a number of independent stakeholders - in this case including 3rd sector campaigners and creative practitioners. We'll be working together to talk about the specific issues faced in Bath & North East Somerset by disabled and neurodivergent people, and rapidly workshopping creative proposals for how to improve them.  We have a grant worth £4000 to offer for these ideas to then be developed,which could either be as one large grant for one project, or split into smaller pots to support more prototype projects; depending on the needs identified in the Sandpit. Sandpit Objectives  Bring researchers, policymakers, creatives with lived experience and campaigners together to influence local decisionmaking and commissioningon accessibility and disability issues; encouraging creative and genuine co-creation of schemes and policy that improves experiences of access in Bath and North EastSomerset.  Primary Questions for the Sandpit

  • Identifyingthe problematic access touchpoints/systems faced by disabled & neurodiverse people in BANES in their lived experience.
  • How can A&H Research and practitioners co-create and co-design creative solutions that solve or positively impactthese touchpoints?

Attendance fees for self employed practitioners attendance are £250 for the day. Organisational contributions available by request if required
