The Bigger Picture

schools, expressive arts and cultural democracy

The new Curriculum for Wales proposes that schools, cultural organisations and artists develop productive relationships for learning and facilitating the Four Purposes. Explore the extensive possibilities that arise from bringing these groups of professionals together to develop projects with pupils. Participants will gain valuable knowledge of what this model of learning and experience means for the education, cultural and arts sectors, as well as for future generations.

Join our growing community to explore the concept of cultural democracy through a participatory programme of talks, workshops and sharing of case studies.
