Our first Inclusive Stories Festival took place digitally in 2021. The festival featured a series of fully funded digital events with a range of authors, illustrators and storytellers to inspire a love of reading and stories for all. We're bringing the Inclusive Stories Festival back in January 2022, with five very exciting events programmed especially for children and teens with additional support needs.
