What's Art Got To Do With It? - LEAN Arts

  • The Platform 2 Ridgeway Road London SW9 7AH UK (map)

Arts, Education and Emotional Well-being with LEAN.

Join Jane Hendrie and Elizabeth Murton, Lewisham Education and Arts Network (LEAN),  will be discussing SPARC: an arts and resilience community of practice in Lewisham, funded by Lewisham HeadStart.

"SPARC aims to increase artists' ability to apply resilience and emotional literacy practice to their arts practice, and effectively measure the impact of this work with children and young people (10-14yrs)"

This will be an active session where you will be introduced to the resilience framework (created by BoingBoing) and how resilience is understood in current academic research.

You will be given the chance to think about how your arts participatory work might build resilience in the children and young people you work with and you will leave with a list of ideas to consider in relation to your practice.

About LEAN
LEAN champions arts education in Lewisham through empowering artist educators, those that work with them and strategic partners to foster high quality creative opportunities for children and young people.
