Following the last ‘Doing Education Differently’ event, there was a discussion between a number of participants about:
How to record and document young people’s engagement in Arts and Culture?
Then could this be used to bring learning from outside back in to the classroom?
Since that point a small group including Portland Inn Project, British Ceramic Biennial,
B-Arts and Appetite have looked at existing models, other approaches and public suggestions to develop a trial project ‘Creative Passport’ that launched this week.
The passport is particularly focused on the Portland Inn Project and the young people involved in the activity there this summer. This group have been involved in designing logos and patterns for it but more importantly they came up with activities and told us their views of Stoke Culture.
To try and make sure this had the widest possible impact and children across the city we also developed a guidance document that sign posts loads of creative and cultural activities from other organisations this summer. So for example to earn the clay badge there are activities like Clay at Home from the BCB or the cooking badge there a link to B-Arts School of Improbable Cooking.
So if you have young people at home there are 2 weeks left of the summer to get them involved!
