Please see below for information on and booking details for this upcoming conference from The Egg children’s theatre and 5x5x5=creativity

SCHOOL WITHOUT WALLS – Breaking Down the Walls of Schools and Cultural Centres

During the Summer Terms of 2011 and 2012, a class of children and their teachers from St Andrew’s Primary School took up residence in the egg for 7 weeks. The school was researching Whole School Transformation. The egg was transforming too.

The stakeholders explored the notion of school, learning, creativity, teaching, partnerships, achievement, citizenship, being a creative person and adult/child relationships.

We invite a debate with the Education and Arts sectors on the transferability of these processes to other schools and cultural settings.

You will hear first-hand from the teachers, children, artists and cultural setting staff who took part: what occurred during the residencies; how the programme was evaluated and how we can learn from this; how the project was funded and how similar projects could be funded; presentations showcasing the work of 5x5x5=creativity over the last year as part of this programme, regionally and nationally.
