Dear teachers and educators,
Please find below some information, shared by April from IVE, regarding Arts Council’s Creativity Exchange which is launching today.
Arts Council England (ACE) has launched Creativity Exchange, a new online community to encourage teaching for creativity across the curriculum. The platform is designed for school leaders, teachers and cultural organisations who work with schools. It will be a place for creative inspiration and to share innovative practice in education. The site will host webinars, provocations, blogs, case studies, links to research and practice.
How to Get Involved
Teachers, school leaders and cultural organisations that work in schools can:
• Contribute content: ACE wants your ideas and contacts to keep the site fresh! Get in touch with simple practical ideas, case studies or articles.
• Connect with others, get new ideas and discuss how you teach for creativity using #CreativityExchange on Twitter
• Keep the conversation going by sharing our content on Twitter using #CreativityExchange so we can reach more educational professionals and advocate for the value of teaching for creativity.
What is the Creativity Exchange?
This new platform is a space for school leaders, teachers, and cultural organisations to share ideas and reflect on what teaching for creativity means in practice. The Creativity Exchange is a bridge between the recommendations that came out of the Durham Commission in October 2019 – and the launch of the Creativity Collaboratives programme later in 2021, a national network of schools working together to develop a model to nurture creativity across the curriculum.
The Creativity Exchange is positioned to offer practical guidance and best practice to support schools to embed creativity and support teachers who we know are under tremendous pressure. Embedding creativity within the education of all young people will make a hugely positive difference to their life chances and the Creativity Exchange will support education professional to make this to happen.
Head to their website here to get involved and access the resources.
