Bild PBS International Conference 2021 – Get Ready to Share your Video Posters!

As we look forward to being able to come together in person once more at the Bild International Positive Behaviour Support Conference this Autumn, we’re excited to announce a new way for participants to bring to life what inclusive PBS looks like in their day-to-day practice by creating Video Posters.

We’re asking participants to submit short films of up to four minutes to our judging panel who will select their favourites to be displayed as Video Posters, in place of the wall posters we’ve had at previous conferences. We hope the chosen videos will inspire participants whilst also inviting reflection on the challenges we are all facing at this time.

This year’s conference will take place in Glasgow from 11-13 October (with an option to attend online) and is themed around ‘The evolving world of PBS: moving forward together.’

Speakers include Professor Rob Horner and Professor Kent McIntosh (University of Oregon), Dr Nick Gore and Suzi Sapiets (University of Kent), Tom Tutton (Aspect Australia), Professor Edwin Jones (Bild) and Professor Kathy Lowe (Independent Consultant), with more to be announced in due course.

For the Video Poster displays, we are looking for films that showcase what people are doing to put the principles and practices of PBS into action, wherever you are in the world. And you won’t need a film degree to pull a submission together – if you’re handy with a camera phone, or have existing footage you can edit together, we’d love to see what you can create.

Your Video Poster should focus on inclusive PBS practice in your organisation, team or on a particular project and should cover the following points:

  • What you did and why
  • What happened as a result?
  • What factors were important?
  • Any advice or tips for other people who want to use this way of working

As well as being displayed in the conference venue for participants to enjoy, the selected Video Posters will be linked in the digital stream of the conference and shared with the public via social media, taking their reach beyond the conference. We’re excited to see how conference participants bring their creativity and ideas to the brief to celebrate good practice!
