On the 9th of July Cubitt held a Masterclass around advocating for the arts in schools as part of the Festival of Blackboards 2014. This was an active, participatory session that aimed to give teachers the tools to assess, frame and deliver a stronger case for the arts in their schools. The session included peer learning and professional tips, combined with practical exercises that participants can conduct with their own school communities.
The session was led by Greg Klerkx, an arts educator and facilitator working with teachers and artists in to build stronger, more meaningful connections between the learning and culture sectors. He is a lead trainer with A New Direction and Creativity, Culture & Education and is co-director of the award-winning cultural producing company, Nimble Fish.
“The workshop provided real tool for use in school”
“There was much positive talk and a likeness of minds that was encouraging.”
