Have you been doing some brilliant Creative Arts Education work in your school that you want to shout about?

Would you like to share your tips and tricks with other Arts-engaged teachers?

Would you like to hear about the creative work going on in Lewisham Schools?


LEAN is hosting a Teachers' Event on Thursday 10th June. This is a chance to celebrate the creative work that's being made in Lewisham schools, listen to how and why schools created their arts projects, and share your own. Come along and talk about the work you are currently making and discuss the arts and cultural projects you would like to pursue next.

This event is for:

  • Staff from Lewisham schools who want to shout out about their arts projects (5 minute slots)
  • School staff who want to hear from colleagues in other schools
  • Freelance arts facilitators and arts and cultural organisations who want to hear what creative projects schools are doing and why, and what schools want to do next

If you are a member of staff from a Lewisham school and want to speak at this event you will be prompted to add your details on the booking form.

We are keen to hear from as many Lewisham schools as possible. We want to hear about the creative work your children and young people have been making in all forms:

  • As part of the curriculum
  • Cross curriculum projects
  • Projects delivered in conjunction with another school or Arts/Cultural Organisation

We are also interested in hearing any ideas, plans, or wishes you have for future projects.

Examples of future ideas could be:

  • A theme you would like to explore through the arts (e.g. Climate Change)
  • An artform you would like to strengthen or a new genre you would like to introduce to the school
  • A year group or group of children/young people you would like to particularly engage
  • Using the Arts to explore a school, national, or international issue
  • A specific project idea that needs outside knowledge or expertise (e.g. a school mural that needs an artist)

As this event is also open to Arts Organisations and artists, it offers a unique opportunity to create partnerships that may help move a 'future idea' into a concrete reality.

To make sure you never miss out on our events, sign up to our mailing lists or register as LEAN member to receive our monthly bulletin.

If you have any access requirements or queries please do contact and we can support you.
