Create Sheffield Community & Special School session
Create Sheffield was set up to help find ways for all young people in Sheffield to have access to the arts and culture. One of the ways that we are helping vulnerable children access the arts is by working alongside their teachers. In November 2019 we set up a Special School Creative Leads community of practice group: the principle of the group is that all members (the creative leads from Special Schools in Sheffield) have expertise and passion for creativity and that through collaboration they can support each other and develop their creative practice.
We have invited Matthew Laurie, who runs the Special School Creative Leads group for Create Sheffield, to come and talk about the four areas that the teachers are focused on: developing an online exhibition, involving arts specialists in school, developing a creative curriculum and accessing funding. If you have an interest in Special Education and creativity, you are warmly invited to join us to share your thoughts and ask any questions.
