‘SHINE’ – an event to launch new training methodologies, materials and a series of showcases by our trainees

Venue: Interchange Studios, Hampstead Town Hall Centre, 213 Haverstock Hill, London NW3 4QP

Time: 3:45pm to 5:45pm – speeches at 5:00 pm

We hope that you will be able to join us for Shine – an event hosted by Collage Arts, WAC Performing Arts and Media and Rinova for the launch for two important new resources targeted at practitioners and organisations using creative approaches to delivering informal learning.

Why is this important? There are new opportunities opening up for the delivery of education and learning.  However, community arts and cultural enterprise agencies are not necessary convincing commissioners that the opportunities they provide can deliver validated outputs or that the work get disaffected learners back into meaningful work.  So these toolkits and our research findings aim to support the sector in making the case to open up, or safeguard, contracts and funding for using creative approaches to reengage young people.

The Toolkits – one developed as part of our European Union Leonardo da Vinci Project ‘ASPIRE’  the other from a Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) Flexibility and Innovation Fund Project  – dovetail to give arts organisations a quality assurance framework and learning outcomes that can be validated and which are especially suited to re-engage disaffected and disengaged young people.

Come and join us to see what we have learned and network with other practitioners and commissioners keen to ensure the best possible learning options for young people. You will also see showcases by our recent trainees and receive copies of the trainer toolkits.
