Throughout the day, there will be a particular focus on linking the creative arts with STEM subjects (STEAM), as we are aware that this is of increasing importance to schools and colleges. This will feature heavily within our workshops, with a view to supporting the exploration of interdisciplinary studies at your institution.

Through feedback from schools and colleges, we understand that the curriculum is changing, and the impact that this may have on the arts in your institution. We would be delighted to support your current studies, and to encourage student progression to the creative arts at Higher Education.

If you would like to attend please email at your earliest convenience. Spaces are subject to availability.
