WHY? FESTIVAL 2016

Following on from Thirty Pound Gentleman’s event at Contact in summer about hate crime and its impact since Brexit, TPG present “Democracy Has Occurred!” an interactive panel discussion, presented in radio show format with music, performances, and special guests. 

The audience will be invited to interact and get the chance to hot seat – becoming a part of the action. 

We'll explore the fallout of Brexit. We will ask political activists, apathists and those inbetween to discuss if ‘democracy has occurred’ or not. We will discover where on the scale of opinions, activism and extremism our panelists are placed. As well as debating whether some opinions, and how they are expressed, are safe for everybody.

The Best New Schools Don't Look Like Schools At All

It's all about using open architecture to nurture young minds.

In other news, 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.

An interesting report on the future of higher education, asking "what will college look like five, ten, and twenty years from now?"

As student loan debt has risen significantly over the past several years, future higher education continues to be seen in the spotlight. GoodCall’s report touches on online driven education, a student’s return on investment, greater accountability placed on colleges and more.  It's an interesting read. 

The report can be found here: https://www.goodcall.com/education/future-of-higher-education/

As many of you know, over the past year, we have undergone a period of consultation with educators, artists, academics and young people to help establish an NTW approach to education.   This has been done as the next logical step for TEAM, but has also been in reaction to the changing world of education in Wales. 

Through our education programme, we want to connect with people throughout Wales, from all backgrounds, in ways that enable them to be creative. We are looking at education for schools; for young people outside mainstream schooling; for families; for teachers, and education for life – providing opportunities for lifelong learning, much of which we offer under the current TEAM structure.  We also wish to show support for the Arts Council and Welsh Assembly Government's Creative Schools Scheme. 

Through our consultation period we have been asking for contributions, either online via this, our Rethinking Education group or in person at regional meetings throughout Wales. This process has been extremely beneficial and has helped inform and shape our future proposed education plan, so I would like to extend a message of thanks to all of you for contributing so enthusiastically to our discussions to date.  

A brief summation of the results of the meetings is that we are now developing a more focused education programme in which we will look at engaging with all digitally, with some through show-related projects and with a few through specific located activity.  More specific details of each of these strands will be made public in the near future, so watch this space...  

In the mean time, our door is always open for new ideas related to education so if you have anything you would like to discuss or to share or if you are a teacher/youth group leader with a specific project in mind and you would like our guidance or support then please do get in touch. 

Many thanks - diolch yn fawr.
