Additional Information:

The Seminar is suitable for professional artists and teachers who wish to develop their present skill base of delivering Arts in Education projects. Through a comprehensive schedule of keynote presentations, interactive workshops and creative inputs, the overall objective of the day is to promote good examples of inclusive Arts in Education practice.

The diversity of the six projects selected for the workshop/case studies will provide you with significant material and inspiration to initiate effective arts in education projects in both the workshop and/or the classroom. Issues of motivation, attendance, cross-curricula nurturing and creative access will be addressed and cross referenced to these successful projects.

Here are preliminary details of the six workshop/case studies:

The Xodus Club House will be a tour of a holistic multi-disciplinary model of arts education. The goal of this model is to provide structures to enable an individual to chart a course to his or her creative future. Facilitated by Dwayne Grannum, Music Educator, Philadelphia

The Exiled Artists in Schools Programme will look at the form and content of this innovative GYPT/Lyric initiative that twins exiled artists from other cultures with nominated mentors and local teachers to create Arts in Education projects. Facilitated by Stella Barnes, Trainer, GYPT, London assisted by Project members

The Life Quiz will look at a recent participatory project undertaken in a Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) by a teacher and an artist in partnership under the auspices of the LIFT Teacher’s Forum year long training course. Facilitated by Janet Evans, teacher & Thierry Lawson, artist, London

'100* Fahrenheit' Mayhem Youth Theatre will present a workshop that reflects the contradiction between the study of Aeschylus's trilogy of plays 'The Oresteia' and the young people's contemporary realisation of the story set in the world of themselves and their parents. Facilitated by the Company

Peer Motivators will look at the ideas informing the Tower Hamlet’s Summer University . This radical initiative aims at raising the aspirations and achievements of young people. One way is through this community peer and volunteering scheme. Facilitated by Sarah Davies, Director, THSU, London assisted by peer motivators [tbc]

Mr. Smith’ s After School Music Club will look at the ideas behind these voluntary music sessions based in an inner city secondary school that have resulted in the creation of a pilot full-time project for disaffected young people inspired by the success of former member Dizzee Rascal. Facilitated by Tim Smith, Music Teacher, London

LEAParts is a unique pan-London Arts in Education organisation. It is funded by Arts Council London to offer a service to all 33 boroughs that make-up greater London. It brings together artists and educators to develop the theory and practice of Arts in Education as part of a national and international forum. It is dedicated to developing Arts in Education, building networks, creating partnerships, sharing ideas and facilitating professional development, all within the context of the universal struggle for creativity and culture.

LEAParts emerged as a practical response to the fragmentation and under-resourcing that afflicted Arts in Education for over a decade at the end of the 20th century. It believes in actively restoring and increasing opportunities for young people to participate in the arts across all art forms. Furthermore it believes that the arts are a powerful educational resource that can communicate with people of all ages on a variety of levels embracing the cognitive, affective, physical and spiritual aspects of our being.

LEAParts aims to keep abreast of, and then respond to, changes to Arts in Education locally, nationally and internationally. As such it welcomes informed comment and input on its current policy and activities. Its website www.leaparts.info is designed to provide a meaningful and enjoyable forum where this professional dialogue can be shared. Please feel free to contribute
