Big Barbican Workshop

Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning’s cross-arts workshop day for primary school, secondary school and college groups looking to experience all the art forms on offer at Europe's largest multi-arts venue. 

What’s involved?
In a day-long creative process, students explore all the art forms that the Barbican has to offer, including art, drama, movement, music, animation and spoken word. Students experiment with each art form in small groups, collaborate in the creation of new ideas and work towards an informal sharing under the guidance of established artists. They develop skills in creativity, communication and innovation and each school receives a short film of their experience, sent to them post-workshop.

During this workshop you can expect your students to

•             Experience and explore many different art forms
•             Develop leadership and team working skills
•             Practice problem solving and communication skills
•             Increase their use of imagination and creative abilities
