The new Curriculum for Wales tasks schools to use local arts, heritage and cultural organisations to feed into the learning of pupils. What will this mean for the design of lessons and educational projects? Join us for a day of talks and workshops to explore how schools, cultural organisations and artists can work together to create innovative and well-resourced expressive arts projects.

We are delighted that World-renowned ceramics artist Ingrid Murphy will give the keynote lecture for this event. Ingrid is Academic Lead for Trans-disciplinary at Cardiff Metropolitan University and through her work has developed a passion for, and undertaken research into creative learning pedagogies. Ingrid brings a wealth of experience in working closely with cultural organisations towards facilitating brilliantly innovative learning programmes, with professionals, communities, students, creative and schools.
