Arts Council England launch Creativity Collaboratives
Date Created: 13th May 2021
Arts Council England have today launched their Creativity Collaboratives funding programme. This is an opportunity for schools to build creative networks and test a range of new practices for teaching and sharing learnings to facilitate system-wide change.
Creativity Collaboratives will build a national network of schools that will work together to explore and test approaches to embed teaching for creativity across the curriculum. Each Creativity Collaborative’s lead school will work within its network to test and evaluate approaches and pedagogies that support teaching for creativity across whole school systems. The pilot period will run from the end of October 2021, through to 31st July 2024. A grant range of up to £360,000 will be available for this period.
Over the pilot period, these groups of schools will become leaders in establishing and sustaining creativity in the classroom and across the curriculum.
Application is open to state maintained schools of any phase (including SEND schools and PRUs) who lead teaching for creativity work with an existing network (or potential to build one) of eight to 12 schools. Lead schools should be rated Good or outstanding by Ofsted.
