Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning and RSC Education Collaboration
Towards a Creative Curriculum
A conference for teachers and arts education professionals
Discover new ways to help young people develop creativity in a new conference exploring arts-based learning in the classroom.
To the Moon and Back
SEND School Performances
Artistic Director and founder of M-SET, Paula Manning invents delightful installations combining live music, drama, visual arts and design that stimulates the senses. We are pleased to present a limited number of performances of this special production, for SEND school groups.
With a simple knock on a front door, your students will share a multi-sensory journey of discovery into interactive spaces of touch, colour, sound and special effects. You’ll encounter props and scenes that conjure the natural world, made of unusual and tactile materials, from feather rain to velvet stars. You’ll also be shown ideas on how everyday objects can be turned into tools for creativity and fun back in school, or at home.
