This film was one of a series produced over more than two years for the British Council MENA by media971. It centred on an Oman conference where education experts and teachers discussed how to include children with disabilities in mainstream education.

media971 combined coverage of the conference with creative use of archive we had shot across the Middle East in previous months. The archive showed the wide reach of the British Council’s Connecting Classrooms programme in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Bahrain and other countries.

It highlights how we are able to repurpose existing pictures, making production very cost-effective. After the conference we produced an online film and later used the material again for short edits for YouTube, Facebook and other digital outlets.
