Barbican Primary Box
Barbican Box is a portable Box filled with the ingredients for making and creating original artistic work, inspired by our multi-arts programme. Our Primary Box is a cross-arts Box designed to ignite creativity in the classroom through a guided process of in-school artist visits and teacher CPD. We have previously worked with mathematician Marcus du Sautoy to curate the Box which introduced pupils to imaginative and adventurous approaches by weaving the arts, writing and mathematics altogether.
As part of our National Development programme, funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, we are delighted to bring the Barbican Primary Box to Norfolk, in partnership with PEACH West Norfolk LCEP via Creative Arts East.
