Event description
Explore creative education in hands-on sessions at this special conference for Year 1-8 teachers and senior leaders.

About this event

'Creativity is now as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.’ – Sir Ken Robinson

There is common recognition that nurturing student creativity in their schooling matters - especially within the complex world we find ourselves in. But what does a creative education look like? How do you teach for creativity? And what role do the arts play within this?

The Centre for Arts and Social Transformation (responsible for Te Rito Toi and the Creative Schools Index) warmly invites you to this special conference day for Year 1-8 teachers and senior leaders. We will explore these questions in hands-on sessions led by a range of thinkers, makers and doers including…

• Renowned drama pedagogue Peter O’Connor sharing his internationally recognised learning experience, A Teaspoon of Light, during the keynote session

• Poet Laureate Selina Tusitala Marsh exploring creative ways to write creatively at primary levels

• Jane Keely from the Sir John Kirwan Foundation’s Mitey mental health in schools project taking a Mitey aligned Te Rito Toi lesson - ‘A Little Kindness Goes a Long Way’
