The Culture Challenge, Bedford Creative Arts and The Royal Opera House Bridge in collaboration with the Bedford Arts and Cultural Education Group (BACE), would like to invite all Bedford Borough based education colleagues interested in developing creative and cultural learning to two creative network meetings.
This is an opportunity for Bedford Borough schools to meet kindred colleagues from other schools and develop knowledge of local and national cultural providers. The results of the recent Bedford Borough Cultural Education Needs Analysis will be shared as will the new CPD offer available to schools from the Bedford Borough based Specialist Leaders in Cultural Education (SLICE) SLE’s.
Hear from current projects such as the BACE cultural twinning programme, and the findings from the creativity for wellbeing project, explore case studies of best practice from schools in Bedford and leave with a ‘goody’ bag of creative and cultural flyers and brochures to ensure that you are aware of what is available to your schools and students. Participants will be able to feed in their thoughts, needs and requirements to the development of strategic projects in the area including the future of the networking meetings. These are particularly well suited to schools undertaking Artsmark, but are absolutely open to all teachers who have an interest in creative and cultural approaches to learning. These are free to attend although booking is required. Complimentary drinks and nibbles will be available.
The Spring and Summer network events are at the following dates and times:
1st May 2019, 4.15 – 5.45, Putnoe Primary School, Church Ln, Bedford MK41 0DH
18th June 2019, 4.15 – 5.45 The Quarry Theatre at St Luke’s Peter’s, 26 St Peters St, Bedford MK40 2NN
