CREATE webinar for educators: applied creativity, the arts and transforming schools
On Tuesday 28 July 2020, the Creativity Research, Engaging the Arts and Transforming Education Centre will be hosting a webinar for educators, with the support of Rosie Williams and John Grill on behalf of the Serpentine Foundation. Featured presenters are:
- Dr Ronald A. Beghetto (Arizona State University)
- Dr Mary Ann Hunter (University of Tasmania)
- Professor Michael Anderson
- Professor Emerita Robyn Ewing AM
- Dr Alison Grove O’Grady
- Andrew Lavery, (Sydney College Of The Arts)
- Dr Sanne Mestrom
- a series of special performances by some of Australia’s foremost creative practitioners.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has seen a dramatic growth in creativity in schools as they adapt and change in order to respond to new challenges and opportunities. The 2020 CREATE Webinar will consider how we can apply artful and creative approaches in whatever “business as usual” becomes in our schools.
Drawing on the insights of artists, educators and researchers, we will discuss models and approaches to transform our practices and cultures to drive meaningful change and ensure that the recent burst of creativity doesn’t turn out to be a flash in the pan. Our hope is that these recent creative experiences will fundamentally change the way we “do” education, and open up the possibilities of creativity and quality arts experiences for all.
