Abstract or Description

ArtScapers online is a resource for creative practitioners interested in exploring change alongside children. It displays the key principles that have informed the ArtScapers work. There are five core values that define our approach to art in education, these are: slowing down, imagining, co-creating, not knowing, and looking differently. This resource shows how those were explored through creative arts workshops on site. Online resource also includes information about the programme, how to join in and research links to key documents that describe ArtScapers, evaluation reports and research.

ArtScapers takes an approach to arts engagement that has creativity at its core. The North West Cambridge Development Art Programme involves research into the work of contemporary artists who have been commissioned to research the site itself, the local landscape and the context and location of Cambridge. It provides a valuable opportunity to address some of the socio-cultural tensions between University and non-University communities. What has emerged through the ArtScapers research is a pedagogical approach with five core values that are based around creative pedagogic theory: slowing down, imagining, co-creating, not knowing, and looking differently.
