The Thriving Child Royal Opera House Bridge Conference - 28 June

Children and young people can face many challenges in the modern world as they navigate their way through school and home life. Social and economic disadvantage, issues around mental health and well-being, discrimination of many kinds may all combine to prevent children from thriving.

In ‘The Thriving Child’, the Royal Opera House Bridge Annual Conference 2019 we will examine these challenges in detail and consider how the arts, creativity and culture can help children and young people to face up to these challenges. We’ll ask whether the current practice of the education, arts and cultural sectors might need to change to meet the needs and expectations of young people.
