Schools conference (Oct 2012)
Creative schools London: sustaining a cultural curriculum in a time of change
We were delighted to welcome over 100 schools to our conference, Creative Schools London, at the British Library on 11 October.
The theme of this year's conference for teachers and school senior managers was how to find innovative and cost effective ways to maintain and develop cultural education. With a mixture of information sessions, practical workshops, discussion and networking, the conference focused on how schools can develop and sustain creative and cultural activity in the face of policy and funding changes.
Speakers included Ian Middleton (Ofsted's national adviser for art, craft and design education), Mark Reid (Head of Education at the British Film Institute), and Patricia Lankester (educationalist who works independently in the areas of the arts, heritage and grant making, and trustee of the Tate and National Gallery amongst other charitable organisations.)
