Creative Conversations

The essence of Creative Conversations lies in the collaboration between schools and creative organisations.

Our goal is to encourage creative collaborations within all industries, exploring the unique interpretations of creativity. We encourage children and young people to express themselves through any different mediums.

To facilitate this, we have developed downloadable resources (accessible below) designed to assist teachers, creative facilitators with these conversations.

Why Participate?

  • We want children and young people to tell us what they want more of in Haringey, what they want to see, and how they want to hear about what’s going on.
  • Young people’s responses will inform the Haringey Culture Strategy which is being written by Haringey Council right now. 

Who can participate?

  • If you live or go to school in Haringey you can participate.
  • These conversations can take place in class and be tailored to a number of subjects, run at youth clubs, or even done alone.

How to participate

We have created a series of resources including:

  • Worksheet (including the questions and space to respond through drawing) 
  • Workshop for KS1+
  • Workshop KS3+

You can use these worksheets and workshops, or express yourselves in the way that’s best for you!
