- Meet young people from Sounds Like Chaos who are building CLIMATE HOME, a temporary, sustainable space, co-designed, built and led by young people where the community decides what matters and discover ways to act upon it. This workshop will look at how teachers and their students can get involved.
- What is it that teachers are looking for when working with artists? What are the top tips and how best can we work together to bring dynamic creative experiences into the classroom?
