Explore creativity in the classroom
Creativity is about many things, but at its core it's nothing without risk. Risk is at the heart of art and creativity, however risk in classrooms is not something most teachers are trained for.
Sydney Opera House has developed a creativity pedagogy to directly address this: the Creativity Framework. This pedagogy is put into action across a three-year program in schools called the Creative Leadership in Learning program.
The Sydney Opera House Creativity Framework is used to explicitly teach creativity as a domain of learning, but also as a way to teach curriculum through creativity. This conference rips these ideas open, inviting delegates to explore the projects from this program as case studies in action.
Delegates at the conference will hear keynote speakers addressing these concepts and then watch performances from the Creative Leadership in Learning schools that have completed three years of work with the Creativity Framework.
Delegates will participate in interactive panels with the teachers, artists and students who created the works on stage. They will have a chance to learn the Sydney Opera House Creativity Framework and discuss with other educators how it works in practice. Delegates will unpick the issues around creativity in classrooms, thinking and challenging other educators in a collegiate and stimulating environment.
