Today I had the pleasure of speaking about creativity to Education students at the University of East Anglia. I introduced myself and briefly described my work at Red Balloon. I then guided the students through an example of a lesson plan that I often use. As part of the course requirements, students must undertake their own creative arts project - so I finished off the session by talking to them about the work they've been doing. This led to some reflective conversations on the nature of creative practice that were a true joy to participate in.
Here's some photographs of the session, and some of the mindmaps produced by the students during the practical exercise.
