Paul Collard, Chief Executive at Creativity, Culture and Education, England ‘How do we capture and measure creativity?’
Tolbooth Arts Venue, Stirling Wednesday 17th April 2013 4.30pm – 6.30pm (doors open at 4pm for refreshments)
Across the world, increasing attention is being given to developing the creativity of children and young people. In all the developed economies, from Japan to Chile, within Europe and across the US this has become a major preoccupation of educators. But how do you know what creativity looks like, and can you tell if it is being developed? To support their work in devising and developing the Creative Partnerships programme, firstly in England and now increasingly abroad, CCE commissioned extensive research into the definition and measurement of creativity and trialled numerous approaches in schools. In this presentation, Paul Collard will provide a constructive and practical guide to identifying creativity in the classroom to enable teachers and artists to inspire children and young people.

He joined the government’s flagship creative learning programme, Creative Partnerships in January 2005 and played a crucial role in clarifying the purpose of Creative Partnerships and streamlining the delivery of the programme in schools.
