Drawing on the extensive archive of case studies from the Creative Partnerships Programme, from sculpture and storytelling to film and multimedia skills, and the experiences of Creative Partnerships individuals, Creative Partnerships in Practice is the authoritative guide to embedding creative learning in schools.
The Creative Partnerships programme, run by the Arts Council, England, was the largest schools-based creative learning intervention ever seen. Artists and creative practitioners worked side by side with educators to bring creativity into the classroom. Over the course of a decade it helped almost 5,000 schools, 90,000 teachers and over one million young people to embrace creative learning both in school and at home.
Written by David Parker, former Director of Research at Creativity, Culture & Education (CCE), this practical handbook builds on the Creative Partnerships programme and explains how you can embed the key principles of creative practice within your school.
