We worked on the Creative Partnerships programme, for a number of years. The Creative Partnerships programme brought creative workers such as artists, architects and scientists into schools to work with teachers to inspire young people and help them learn. Following government cuts the programme came to an end in September 2011 despite proof of its worth. We worked as agents of change with St Mary’s Catholic College, Devonshire Primary School and Christ the King Catholic Primary School in Blackpool and Peel Park Primary School in Accrington. Creative Partnerships in Lancashire was coordinated by Curious Minds. We’ve worked with them on a number of other initiatives too. Our friendship grows as does the potential for future adventures.
