The arts as an essential service
The third and final in the Creative Scotland and Art in Education Recovery Group partnership events
Virtual event. 10:00-12:15, 03 November 2021
This event is for anyone from the arts, early years, education, health, social work, youth work, community development and other sectors with an interest in whether the arts could be viewed as essential or should be an ‘essential service’. The event will share case studies and approaches and create space for discussion with other participants.
Eden Court Theatre will consider the ways in which the arts are essential to their community, including to children and young people. Freelance artist Jack Stancliffe will have a conversation with a primary school teacher about their project ‘is art essential?’ and how creative skills could equip children for the uncertainties of today’s world. We will hear about an inspiring partnership between the Village Storytelling Centre and the Centre for Civic Innovation Glasgow and, health promotion staff from the Early Years and Young People Team at NHS Tayside will share why the arts are at the heart of the activities they design to support children and young people’s health and wellbeing.
The event will be held on Zoom and will be live captioned.
