We collaborate with teachers in individual schools or federations to plan and deliver comprehensive bespoke creative learning projects; these participatory projects can address any area of the curriculum, from maths to local history, using a combination of creative skills – theatre, dance, creative writing, art, music, photography, video and digital technology and more. We really enjoy exploring new ideas with teachers and pupils: contact us to discuss ideas.
