10th Annual Swan Conference JUNE 4TH


It is with great regret that we are having to change the format and location of our annual gathering for 2016. Despite great efforts from our wonderful South West England local Swan group, a two day event in the University of Bristol became completely unaffordable. Perhaps symptomatic of the the marketisation of our learning spaces, this has been a very frustrating situation. We are now in the midst of organising a ONE DAY EVENT in London on June 4th. Moving to the capital allows us to benefit from excellent transport links and available venues at short notice, but we acknowledge how wonderful it would have been to be hosted by the South West of England. 

A more detailed statement and further information regarding the availability of and how to book tickets, as well as workshops and speakers will be uploaded here soon. Watch this space! We are looking forward to seeing you!
