It was a night to remember
Creativity is central to the MakeBelieve Arts ethos, so when we saw the opportunity to see the leading creative educationalist in action, we seized it with both hands.
‘An Evening with Sir Ken Robinson' (presented by Learning Without Frontiers) was held last night at the Congress Centre in London, and we were lucky enough to be seated in the front row of over 400 teachers, educators, creative practitioners, and more. For those of you who are familiar with Sir Ken's work, this was an incredibly exciting prospect and the buzz in the auditorium was palpable.
Equally, the unmistakable truth in Sir Ken's thoughts on creativity and education rang clear and resonated with each and every audience member.
MakeBelieve Arts also had an exciting investment in the evening. In recent days, our very special team member, Tamsin, has been campaigning for Sir Ken Robinson to join Vivian Gussin Paley as Patron of MakeBelieve Arts.
The inimitable basic of education comes down to a learner, and a teacher.
Sir Ken Robinson
Tamsin and the whole team have had a huge amount of fun in trying to achieve her dream; but more than that, we firmly believe in Sir Ken Robinson's ethos for creativity as central to education, not peripheral. In everything we do at MakeBelieve Arts, we strive to uphold this ethos and, having had the privilege to hear Sir Ken live, we're even more determined!
