PERFORMANCE, ART & CULTURE IN EDUCATION

Our key challenge – how do we ensure Performance, Art and Culture can survive and thrive in education, not only as subjects in their own right, but as opportunities to enrich young people’s social as well as academic capital?

As well as sessions exploring these key issues we’re having a great range of performances – music, art, drama – by children and young people from across the region.

We’ve listed just some of our great contributors below with more to come, we’re also delighted that the regional Music Hubs, Create Sheffield, regional museums and many others are working with us by curating sessions for this theme.

Our Contributors

Friday Sessions and performances – with more to be confirmed

Panel – Building social capital through music

The policy environment for music and the arts in the curriculum is stimulating discussion and debate across the education sector. Our panel of highly experienced colleagues from schools and organisations engaged in music service provision will be discussing issues of concern for both policy and practice.
