A conference for teachers from RSC Education and Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning

Jonothan Neelands - Speaker, Towards a Creative Curriculum

"It is time to reclaim the arts as an entitlement for all children rather than a privilege for some. Every child deserves an excellent education and this has to include a lively and broad arts programme that allows them to express their creativity, find a place in the creative economy and develop their common humanity."

A dynamic new conference from Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning and RSC Education, designed to help teachers and arts professionals working in schools to develop a curriculum that successfully embeds the arts within the new Ofsted framework.

Andria Zafirakou - Speaker, Towards a Creative Curriculum

"With high pressure on schools to deliver and report a high percentage of their students gaining the EBacc, now is the most crucial time to ensure that creativity is embedded in the curriculum and all that we do. The art subjects naturally stimulate creativity and need to be locked into every school's curriculum and not considered as an enrichment/ extracurricular provision."
