Creative Schools + Creative Colleges has been addressing real-world problems and championing creativity within East London schools. This has been an extraordinary time and we understand the pressures that you may be facing and the disruption to normal schedules, so we have put together a flexible programme of in-person and online sessions over a two week period, that can fit into your working week.

Offering the opportunities for teachers and cultural partners to reflect, try out new learnings and to explore relevance, creativity and equity in education in order to address current and future challenges.

The Slow Symposium invites participation from schools, colleges and cultural organisations for online and in-person discussion, debate and discovery.

It will give food for thought and practical skills, tools and ideas to take back into classrooms.
