Creative Learning across the Barbican-Guildhall Campus: A new paradigm for engaging with the arts?

Sean Gregory & Peter Renshaw, 2013

This paper describes a major research project linking an institution of Higher Education (Guildhall School of Music & Drama) and a commercial arts centre (Barbican). The project is called Creative Learning. The paper starts by setting out the two main research aims of the project and describes the practice-based working methods through which these aims are achieved. The pedagogic underpinning of the approaches used in the various performances, workshops and other events that constitute the practice-based elements of Creative Learning is then analysed in detail. This analysis draws on three main events as examples of Creative Learning in action. The paper goes on to evaluate the overall project’s achievements so far, and sets out probable key directions for the future. The paper ends by reflecting on the significance of the research for the development of the artistic landscape of the future. Download the report here (PDF, 212KB)
