Professionalism - or death by a thousand qualifications?
Should artists working in schools be accredited?
Creative Partnerships Hastings and East Sussex are organising a series of
free seminars featuring high profile speakers exploring current issues
facing creative practitioners, teachers and individuals interested in
creativity and learning.
The first of these is being held on THURSDAY MARCH 22ND in the restaurant
at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea, from 5-7pm.
We have two speakers, Tony Fegan, Learning Director of the London
International Festival of Theatre, and Liz Whitehead, Co-director of the
Fabrica Gallery in Brighton.
The event will be chaired by Philip Halstead, Director of the Hastings and
St Leonards Excellence Cluster.
After the speakers we will open the discussion to the floor and invite
contributions on the subject. Come along and have your say, watch the sun
set over the sea - and have free drinks and nibbles into the bargain!
