What place is there for drama and expressive arts in the curriculum?

45mins For Partners and teachers

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 projects that have successfully brought drama & the expressive arts into the primary school curriculum. You’ll hear about the challenges, practicalities and outcomes of the projects from the perspective of the school and the arts partner involved. 

  • Thom Winterbotham from Malin Bridge Primary School and Helen Griffin from Development Education Centre South Yorkshire (DECSY) 
  • Sheffield Theatres and a school partner

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
