How can cultural partnerships support active health and well-being?
Part of Why Creativity Matters NOW, the big conversation about arts and cultural education in Sheffield.
About this event
In this session, you will have the chance to hear about two creative projects that successfully supported children’s active health and/or mental well-being. You’ll hear about the challenges, practicalities and outcomes of the projects from the perspective of the school and the arts partner involved.
- Becky Stroud from Beck Primary school and Teo Greenstreet from Greentop Community Circus Centre will talk about bringing circus skills into PE lessons.
- Helen Fidler from the Virtual School for Children Looked After will talk about a project supporting children’s mental health
In all the sessions, we are keen that there is a conversation and we welcome input from the audience. If you have a story about a successful project we know others will be interested to hear it - so please come prepared to share!
This session is part of ‘Why Creativity Matters NOW’, the big conversation about arts and cultural education in Sheffield, part of the Learn Sheffield Autumn Online Festival
