IVE, formerly CapeUK, have been at the forefront of research into creativity for 20 years. During that time we have produced a number of leading reports regarding creativity, what is creativity, what are its benefits, how it can be taught and what are the challenges to achieving that.

Our “Creative examples” showcase a variety of programmes and projects which arts and cultural organisations are using to help them make positive connections with children, young people and communities. They aim to help you review your existing work to see if any of these ideas and approaches documented here might be useful in your context.

Rotherham Rebuzz was a project that aimed to get more boys involved in dance and particularly targeted boys with low attainment, low engagement, and low aspirations to use dance as a way of raising their aspirations and inspiring them with male dance role models.
