A highly interactive virtual conference exploring how to bring creativity into learning and effectively address current and future challenges.
Creative Schools & Creative Colleges has been addressing real-world problems and championing creativity within east London schools for four years. In this extraordinary year, the Symposium invites participation from schools, colleges and cultural organisations nationally for a day of online discussion, debate and discovery.
Hosted within an innovative virtual conference hall and free to attend, the event includes keynotes, panel discussions, workshops, exhibitions and networking for education professionals and those working in the creative, cultural and arts sectors.
Confirmed events include:
Keynote from Professor Bill Lucas, Professor of Learning and Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning
Followed by a panel discussion with:
Stuart Worden, Principal of The BRIT school
Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director at the Royal Court Theatre
Jennifer Gibbs, Ofsted
Other panel discussions will involve sector experts exploring creativity in the context of learning under the themes of identity, inclusion, wellbeing and future work. Teachers will also be invited to participate in education-sector specific workshops to exchange insights and ideas, facilitated by primary, secondary and further-education experts.
There will also be networking opportunities, short film screenings and a virtual exhibition to help arts and education professionals share insights and explore how the two sectors can cultivate high quality learning experiences and engagement in this time.
