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 wellbeing – discrimination of many kinds may all combine to prevent children from thriving.

In The Thriving Child (Royal Opera House Bridge Annual Conference 2019), we will examine these issues in detail and consider how creativity, arts and culture can help children and young people face up to these challenges.

We’ll ask whether current practices in the education, arts and cultural sectors might need to change to meet the needs and expectations of young people.

Speakers at the conference include: Akala, Baroness Beeban Kidron, Dominic Wyse, Adam Annand, Pat Thomson, Kitty Stewart, Darren Chetty and Sonia Livingstone.

The day will be hosted by journalist and broadcaster, Kirsty Wark.
