Resources: A Creative Curriculum

This is a group for anyone working with young people; a platform for you to share your ideas, activities and lesson plans created by you; if you happen to use NTW shows as your initial stimulus, then even better!  We are looking for fresh, innovative ideas with creativity at its heart, no matter what the subject area.  If you have any exemplar work of which you are particularly proud, any videos or audio of your pupils engaged in exciting creative activities then please include it here also.   We look forward to hearing your amazing ideas!

Arts Active will be holding an Artist's Fair and Regional Network Event for A2:Connect Arts and Education Network Central and South area at the beginning of April. Its an event designed to showcase artists and arts organisations who work in schools and to build connections and generate engagement within the sector. Among the delegates will be headteachers, creative agents, arts development staff and other arts professionals involved in bringing artists into schools. 

The free event will be at Cyfarthfa High School on 5th April. There will be opportunities to deliver workshops which can be observed by delegates, a trade fair in the main hall where artists and arts organisations will have stalls to showcase their work with schools, and then a Regional Network Meeting with a panel led discussion, and some Pecha Kucha style artists presentations.

I'd like to mention the online resource we have created at the World Intellectual Property Organization on respect for copyright. is a set of teaching tools that we developed with Ian Wall of The Film House. If anyone wants to adapt the materials in some way (e.g., a Welsh language version), they are welcome to get in touch.

We are working on a similar resource on trade marks, which should be finished by the end of March 2017.

Hi Bill!  When I said "Before I Leave" I was referring to the play rather than my employment status...:)

If you are a teacher or work with young people and would be interested in some scripts to help creatively engage with your groups, then please do get in touch as we have scripts available which we would be happy to donate to you.   We currently have copies of The Dark Philosophers based on the stories of Gwyn Thomas and adapted by Carl Grose as well as A Provinicial Life, by Peter Gill and based on the work of Anton Chekhov.  If you would be interested, just let us know.

Our next show, Before I Leave, will be a great experience for anyone age 14+ and we will be hosting post-show talks at the performances on 2nd and 8th of June.  If anyone is interested in bringing school or home-educated groups along and would like a backstage tour, please do let me know.  Also, don't forget that you can now apply for the 'Go and See' fund to help with costs - as part of the Lead Creative Schools Scheme, the Arts Council of Wales' new funding stream will allow schools to apply for small one-off grants of up to £1,000 to fund visits to arts events in galleries, theatres, arts centres and other venues.

There are so many ways that young people can get involved with City of the Unexpected over the coming months - please have a look at the link below and forward to anyone you think may be interested - it's going to be amazing!

Thanks Naomi, sounds really interesting. Did you see the launch of the new ACW 'Experiencing the Arts Fund' yesterday?  May be of interest to your network. 

Our aim is to provide children and young people with opportunities to engage with the arts and cultural activities as a routine part of their wider learning experience.

Experiencing the Arts is a two-strand scheme that we believe will make a big impact on the learning experiences of our young people, wherever they live in Wales.

f you are free, please come along to Cardiff Bay this Saturday where we will, as part of the amazing BDP Senedd event, be showing a short film about young people's educational experiences and furthering our Rethinking Education discussion.  We have interviewed pupils from Ocean Park Academy in Splott, Bryn Hafren School in Barry, Mount Stuart Square Primary in Cardiff Bay, Bridgend Home Education Network in Tondu, Castle School in Pembrokeshire, Penrhos Centre in Colwyn Bay and Mess up the Mess Theatre Company in Ammanford. They have each answered questions about what matters most to them when it comes to their education and about what they believe NTW could do for them.  It makes interesting viewing and will help to add to our discussion.  It's quite startling to see how many of them feel that levels and grades are the most important thing about education...

We are so grateful to each of the enthusiastic and engaging participants and to all of their schools, learning centres and parents for their support.  The film will be shown in the Pier Head building at 4pm on Saturday and will later be made available online.
