The North East branch of AFT welcome you to the banks of the river Tyne for AFT’s 44th national conference. Newcastle and The North East of England is known for its rich tradition of creativity, innovation and making. These traditions have helped shape our many local landscapes. Carrying a rich sense of community, identity and belonging, the region also has a proud history of acting to protect the rights of families and communities within changing political times. Newcastle and Gateshead quayside, the location of the 2019 conference is an iconic part of the North East heritage and a landscape developed from a history of heavy industry transformed into a place of sporting, cultural and social activity.

The 2019 conference theme “How the contemporary landscape of practice is shaping current systemic approaches and, how current systemic approaches can reshape the landscape of practice” considers how systemic practice is shaped by and can help shape wider social and political landscapes. 

We hope that you will feel as inspired as we do about the conference and that you will wish to attend. We look forward to seeing you in Newcastle.
