Creative Schools Project beginning in Coláiste Bhaile Chláir in January 2020

Coláiste Bhaile Chláir has been selected to be one of the 150 new schools taking part in the Creative Schools Programme 2020 – 2021.

Over 2 years, a Creative Associate will work with students, staff and parents on different creative initiatives. The projects will be student-centred, with a focus on making creativity accessible for everyone and to support the school’s many existing creative projects.

Beginning on Tuesday 14th January, Creative Associate Maeve Mulrennan will introduce the Creative Schools Programme to 2nd and 5th year students. Interested students can then put themselves forward to be part of the Student Committee: the Committee is responsible for ensuring that all projects are student-centred, finding out what their peers would like to do, and developing projects with the Creative Associate. The Committee will change in September 2020.

There is a small budget from Creative Schools, however the programme will also include partnering with other organisations, availing of free initiatives and developing what already exists in the school.

What is a Creative Associate?

Creative Associates are artists, creative practitioners and/or educators with an understanding of the arts and creativity. Creative Associates will match the needs of schools to arts and creative opportunities in their locality. They will identify potential areas for improvement and will inspire, energise and drive schools forward in addressing these. Creative Associates challenge, support and sustain new practice in the field of the arts, culture and creative learning.

What can be included in this Programme?

Gaming, Cosplay, Baking, Biodiversity, film making, animation, dance, storytelling, traditional music, Minecraft, drawing, sculpture, radio, musical theatre......whatever way you express your creativity, we can include it!
