MADE Teachers and cultural partners came together to creatively dicuss how we make the curriculum more Manchester
In March, cultural partners, teachers and creative educators were invited to explore how we as a city can use creative education to champion youth voice and support the Manchester City Council's ambition to become a UNICEF Child-Friendly City. MADE had guest speakers including Zoe Morris (Head Teacher of Chorlton High School), Keisha Thompson (Contact Theatre CEO), Astrid Guldhammer (Børnekulturhuset, Aarhus, Denmark), Jaffer Hussain (Manchester City Council), Jo Sliwa (Abraham Moss) and Liz O'Neill (Z-arts). We hosted an Employability Task Group youth creative industry careers panel, in conversation with the Creative Influencers, and featured workshops by Venture Arts, Odd Arts and Z-arts using the youth-informed CPD research, to explore classroom learning needs.
