As we look to the future we wonder – what opportunities will our young people have? And what skills will they need to navigate these fast-changing times?
We believe that
Creative Learning plays a leading role in enhancing educational opportunities and increasing engagement in life-long learning – while developing the capacities that will best equip our children for the challenges and opportunities of the future.  Importantly, creativity also helps us rethink approaches to learning and what 'an education' can really do and be.

In response to this, we are proud to have launched the
Creative Collective in February. The vision of the Creative Collective is to build a ‘community of practice’ of educators and contribute to a national conversation about the power of creativity in inspiring positive learning outcomes for young people.

We invite you to join the Creative Collective and contribute to
this important conversation about our children’s future.

Creative Learning: A Necessity Not An Option

WE are proud to launch Dr Julie Robson and Teya Dusseldorp’s research paper about the history, international perspectives, relevance and importance of creative learning techniques in modern education. ‘Creative Learning: A Necessity Not An Option’ is the centrepiece of our position on this critical topic.  

Launch of Creative Collective

WITH performances, panel discussions, workshops and lectures – the launch of the Creative Collective was a great success in celebrating creativity and galvanising the educational community. Check out our videos and relive the happy memories from the Gala Performance and the Professional Development Day  

ConnectED Workshops

OUR commitment to providing teachers with professional development in creative learning continues with our ConnectED workshop series. Educators are welcome to join us for three action learning sessions to problem-solve and discuss challenges / opportunities and form an action plan on how to continue to bring creativity to your learning space. 

Reflecting on Creativity

JOY Suliman was a participant in our Creative Collective professional workshop. She was particularly inspired by the ‘Home’ session, which was run by Sydney Story Factory, and based on their collaboration with over 270 people in the creation of a book about life in Redfern called ‘Home’.
