In Search of Creativity

In 2016 we ran this event, a one-day festival to connect schools and arts organisations across Leicester City. We invited children to be creative agents and provided an opportunity for consultation with young people on their view and understanding of cultural education.

The goal of the participatory day was to find out what creativity means to young people. This was explored by embedding Arts Award and delivering an inspiring programme of artist lead activity, which had a central theme of Being, Becoming and Belonging in Leicester.

The event was held at Attenborough Arts Centre on Friday 8th July. 75 children took part, from 8 city primary and SEN schools with the support of 17 teachers and a team of 14 local artists and creatives.
