A Centre for Research in Arts, Creativity and Literacy seminar
Presented by Paul Collard, Chief Executive of Creativity, Culture and Education (CCE)
Paul Collard is the Chief Executive of Creativity, Culture and Education (CCE) an international foundation dedicated to unlocking the creativity of children and young people in and out of formal education. CCE was originally established to design and support the delivery of the Creative Partnerships programme in England which ran from 2002 to 2011. With a budget of around €50 million each year, it was able over the period to work with over 5000 schools, well over a million young people and around 90,000 teachers. The success and impact of the programme attracted considerable international attention and CCE now supports the delivery of programmes modelled on Creative Partnerships across a wide range of European countries including Norway, Lithuania, Holland, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Hungary.
Within the United Kingdom, it is advising the Arts Council of Wales and the Welsh Government on a £20 million Arts and Creative Learning Plan which was launched in the Spring of 2015, and is delivering training, seminars and workshops in most local authorities in Scotland on behalf of the Government agencies Education Scotland and Creative Scotland. At a European Level, it has worked closely with the EU Commission on a range of issues and has just delivered a report for the influential private German Foundation Mercator, on developing a European strategy for Creative and Cultural Education. Beyond Europe, CCE ran a Creative Partnerships programme in Karachi, which is now running in Lahore, Pakistan and has provided training for teachers and artists in countries as diverse as Taiwan, Vietnam, Western Australia, Qatar, Tunisia and Thailand. In 2011, CCE was the recipient of the World Innovation Summit on Education (WISE) award for its outstanding contribution to innovation in world education.
Paul is a Special Professor in the School of Education, attached to CRACL.
