Sessions include:

  • Developing a creative curriculum
  • Policy changes and responses to the curriculum review
  • Working with music hubs
  • AND: a manifesto for cultural education
  • Working with libraries
  • Developing your own creativity
  • Ways to support the arts in your school : Artsmark and Arts Award

We will also share findings from a major new NFER research piece commissioned by A New Direction in partnership with the Mayor of London and Arts Council England, which provides fresh understanding of cultural education and partnerships taking place within schools across London.

The findings help to uncover the extent and nature of schools' engagement with cultural organisations, challenges and barriers they experience in developing cultural opportunities, as well as identifying good practice that can be shared.

The research will complement the Mayor's education inquiry and we will be working with the findings to influence the development of initiatives such as the concept of a 'London Curriculum'.
