Event description

Description

How arts and culture can support the delivery of the British Values agenda in schools.

Curious Minds and the Whitworth would like to invite senior leaders from the education and cultural sectors to an informative symposium on how arts and culture can be harnessed to creatively deliver the British Values agenda across the curriculum.

At this event, school leaders and creative practitioners will share learning and current practice. The event will also launch a new Curious Minds publication, 'British Values: Beyond Box Ticking', which pulls together research case studies from their flagship SLiCE (Senior Leaders in Cultural Education) fellowship programme.

Participants will hear from SLiCE fellows and North West cultural organisations and get a sense of how this work has impacted in schools, local communities and with Ofsted. Explore how this work has helped schools and young people to shape creative responses that unpick and humanise what we really mean by British Values and how we can promote them.

Delegates will also get a chance to preview the opening of a gallery intervention by pupils from Fred Longworth High School. Year 10 students have made a series of new artworks that will be on display until August. Using the Hogarth 'Prints of Darkness' exhibition at the Whitworth, and the work of internet collage sensation Christopher Spencer (AKA Cold War Steve), the students were invited to voice their opinions about living in Britain in 2019.

The young people will be in the gallery on the day to share their passions, politics, and commentate on the place that they live and the things that matter to them.
