“Creativity Matters – Social Inclusion” is part of the creativity matters series of reports examining the role of creativity within education.
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 t0 achieving that.
Originally produced in 2006, “Creativity Matters – Social Inclusion” examines issues relating to how creative projects can be used to promote social inclusion for young people which are excluded from conventional education due to a variety of factors. The report looks at the evidence for creative project’s effectiveness, argues for why it is a preferable tactic to other methods of promotion social inclusions and gives specific examples where creative projects have had a proven impact.
While the challenges facing schools have changed since then, much of this research remains accurate and provides valuable advice for schools that want to engage excluded young people in learning.
