Juliet Brown - Finalist for the 2019 Chief Minister’s Inclusion Awards

Juliet Brown is a finalist for the Excellence in Innovation, Design and Access award at the 2019 ACT Chief Minister’s Inclusion Awards!

Juliet Brown worked within the Infrastructure and Capital Works Branch of the ACT Government’s Education Directorate for ten years. In her role Juliet went above and beyond what was expected, working to create sensory gardens or spaces within many ACT public schools.

These sensory spaces promote the inclusion of students with special needs and challenging behaviours in non-specialist schools by providing them with a safe space where they can take a break, relax and calm down.

Through effective communication, Juliet used the feedback from the schools to work with various professionals to create designs for meaningful, valuable and appropriate spaces to meet the diverse needs of students.
