The Creative Inclusion in Adult Education (CIAE) project came to an end on the 31st October with a successful conference held in Cork, Ireland. Over 100 participants gathered to hear from inspiring speakers from organisations such as art galleries and inclusive art centres. Organisations that had been selected by the project as promising practice examples in the area of arts educations for adult learners with disabilities were also invited to present their work. It was a great success and the conference closed with a moving performance by musical group “Les Tambours de la Chapelle”.
