Event providers: Manchester Metropolitan University

Our Creative Arts tasters are packaged for teachers to deliver in school, and include lesson scaffolding, video resources and practical activities. They can be used piecemeal, or delivered as a half- or full-day session.

Once you express interest, you will be contacted to arrange the transfer of your chosen package(s) to you electronically.

Four different taster packages are available:

Design Thinking: design futures; using design thinking in education and life in general; and how and where design affects our daily lives.

Creativity as a Lifelong Skill: how to foster creative skills in multiple ways; why studying creative subjects and engaging with creative activity can support learners in any subject area, discipline, career; how to develop fluid and fear free creative skills; and sequential thinking toolkits.​

​Discussions with Art: using art & design to talk about stuff; art activism; reflective discussions around art, evocative art and critical analysis skills; and public art – who is it for? why is it there? is this art? does this count as art? what is art?

Creative Careers: real creative career stories; links to evidence about creative industries and ways to find out about creative careers; guidance around what to study.
