Fostering Creativity in Children and Young People Through Education and Culture

Monday 4th – Tuesday 5th September
Durham University

The OECD Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI) and Durham University are hosting an international conference to discuss innovative approaches to equip young people with the creative skills required by tomorrow’s societies and strategies for scaling up and embedding innovations around creativity in education and culture. 

The conference builds on ongoing CERI work to improve our understanding of how creativity skills can be visibly and tangibly articulated by teachers, students and policy makers, and learnt and assessed as part of the curriculum. The meeting aims to bring together two types of practices around creativity: pedagogical practices in formal education, and cultural practices in out-of-school education or through partnerships between cultural agencies and schools.

This conference will bring together international speakers from the education world; from practicing teachers to academics in higher education institutions globally, alongside practitioners from within the cultural sector. Its format will be highly interactive, emphasising breakout sessions for discussion and exchange, and will mainly focus on practice.
