Call out for Creative Practitioners (Creativity Collaboratives Nottingham)

Are you interested in testing out innovative approaches, in reflecting on your own practices and working collaboratively with teachers, children and young people?

Creativity Collaboratives Nottingham is looking for expressions of interest from creative practitioners from the arts, design, science, engineering or digital technology field, who are excited to work in collaboration with highly skilled and experienced teachers to investigate how we embed creativity and curiosity in our schools.

Creativity Collaboratives Nottingham, led by Welbeck Primary School, is a 3 year project supported using public funding by Arts Council England, and by Freelands Foundation. We are a network of 12 Nottingham schools with an overarching research question of ‘How do we nurture our children’s innate creative capacities and sustain their curiosity about the world.’ The project will provide a whole series of opportunities for children, teachers and creative practitioners to work collaboratively to explore what it means to be creative in this rapidly changing world and share its findings.

How to apply

Please download the documents below for further information and submit up to 2 sides of A4, including up to three examples of existing work, initial ideas of how you would respond to our research question and how you envisage the Creativity Collaboratives programme to further your own creative practice and thinking. You may include photographs, illustrations, examples or links to previous work.

Deadline: Proposals should be emailed to by 1pm on 25th March 2022.

The selected creative practitioners will be notified by Friday 1st April 2022.
