ART AT WORK: EXPLORING POTENTIAL
WEDNESDAY JULY 8 2015
BRIGHTON ALDRIDGE COMMUNITY ACADEMY
ARTS EDUCATION FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
How can we ensure young people in Brighton & Hove profit from the extraordinary range of creative industries in our city?
This free event provides a practical look at the previous Art at Work programme (see below), which was delivered through a two-year partnership between the Aldridge Academies in Brighton & Hove, Photoworks, Lighthouse and creative industries in the city.
Teachers will develop new ideas for practical application in the classroom, while creative industry professionals will discover accessible ways to engage young people and connect with schools.
Previous Lighthouse events in the Art at Work programme:
Family Fakes: participants were inspired to create a fantasy family portrait
Orbit Ever After Filmmaking Workshop: a screening and filmmaking workshop
Game Jam with Hide and Seek: games designers put young people at the heart of the Brighton Digital Festival
Cube Cola Trading Post: wildcrafting cola from an open source recipe, reverse-engineered from the original Coke
