‘For all of our students, for all of their lives’ – Embracing the role of the arts in schools


What role do the Arts play in your school? This session will look at a sound evidence base for the positive impact that the Arts have within our educational settings and wider society. Are you responsible for any element of the arts within your school? Drama, dance, music, art, photography or media? Are you a senior leader looking to harness the power of the arts to improve student outcomes? This session will empower you to return to school with practical ideas that will have impact in both outcomes and enriching the lives of the young people work with.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
