The Creative Educators Network/ Gathering was an opportunity to identify and develop a network of creative professionals, early years practitioners, museum educators, librarians, and educators from a range of disciplines to collaborate, celebrate and foster creativity.
Input: up to 90 minutes of peoples time and a positive disposition.
Outputs: joy, play, critical discussion, sustainable plans, new connections.
The ultimate outcomes of this endeavour included the stimulation of an ongoing discussion around creativity in learning and whether a creative educator community within a broader educational context has relevance.
We were graced with a generous gathering of colleagues, ideas and questions with shared out-loud thinking, good company, refreshments and the germination of many seeds for creative action.
Collaboration, community building, cross pollination, ideation, feedback, opportunity creation, professional networking.
