Rivers of the World expands to work with Primary Schools
With the support from the Foyle Foundation and The Elmley Foundation we are pleased to announce our arts education programme Rivers of the World, delivered in partnership with the British Council is expanding.
During the next two years we will deliver, support and embed our international arts based learning programme in twelve Primary schools across Worcestershire, Barking and Dagenham.
Rivers of the World aims to empower and equip teachers with arts based learning skills and techniques and to stimulate creativity in children and young people to explore global themes on rivers. Schools will get the opportunity to engage with CPD training, work with professional artist/s in the classroom, have access to educational resources, develop international links with a school overseas and celebrate the artistic talent of their pupils through high-profile exhibitions in each region.

"We are delighted to announce that for the first time we are introducing the Rivers of the World model into primary schools this year, allowing teachers and their pupils to benefit from professional training, international partnerships as well as the opportunity to work with artists and have their work exhibited alongside the work of the local participating secondary schools. We hope that this will encourage partnership building among schools and increase the impact of the project in each of the new UK regions."
