Reflective Practice
Session: Can artists add anything to the early years sector?

A facilitated session for artists and arts organisations, asking
provocative questions to explore how arts practitioners can work with the early
years sector.

  • With change to budgets, more child-led, continuous
    provision in early years settings is there a place for artist led sessions?
  • If early years
    settings are already creative, what can artists contribute?
  • What are your hopes, fears and
    wildest dreams for artists in the Early Years sector?

The Rainbow Collective supports early years arts in
Lewisham, over our first year of operating we have discovered changes to how
early years provision is delivered. We have experienced amazing creative
practice by staff in early years settings. The Collective strongly believe
artists still have a role in these settings and invite you to debate these
issues.

 

 About the Evening:

The session will begin with
an introduction by Tiffany from Lewisham’s Early
Years Improvement Team
. Previously a primary teacher, Tiffany now works to
support all early years settings. She will share her knowledge of working with
different early years settings.

The facilitated discussions will use ‘Open Space
Technology’
where there will be an opportunity to move between different
discussions. This will encourage you to think laterally about your practice and
role in Early Years settings. Working alongside your peers, from across the arts,
you will consider and debate the roles of the artist and educator. The early years sector is changing and we want artists at its heart.
 

This will be an informal,
friendly session- but put your thinking caps on!

All artists welcome: Drama,
dance, music, visual arts, craft, spoken word, poetry….
