Exploring Contemporary Creative Practices Within and Beyond School
This one day conference on creative practices in and beyond schools seeks to look across settings to consider current research and methodologies. Across the day we aim to find commonalities and consider contextual differences in order to engage in critical debate and develop both research and practice agendas. The conference will draw together interested colleagues from diverse settings, including homes, communities, schooling and Higher education.
The focus of discussion across the day will include insights from current research inside and outside school, as well as the range of methodologies being used to generate these. With contributions from scholars in the field, this conference examines the ways in which diverse creative practices are facilitating creativity despite, or perhaps in response to, various policy agendas and how in homes and arts contexts creativity is also being fostered. The implications for what and how creative practices should be fostered will be examined.
