A visit from our School of Creativity Advisor
On Monday we had a visit from Julian Sefton-Green, our national School of Creativity Advisor. His role is to help us reflect on our progress as a SoC. He popped into 208 for a working lunch with the ARG and we took some time to collaborate on creating ideas for this year's Arts Festival. I explained that the theme was "Past, Present & Future" and that we were hoping to curate a more joined up festival so that the Tallis community had a better idea what was going on and a better opportunity to take part. We would also like to experiment with more mixed media and inter-disciplinary performances/exhibitions with a view to preparing for next year's event which would be a proper celebration of our time on the current site before we move to the new school.
The group came up with some excellent ideas which we have added to the Wallwisher. These included a fashion show of all the past school uniforms, a late night film screening using sheets draped from the link followed by a sleepover on the concourse and an episode of Doctor Who visiting Tallis Past, Present & Future. Genius!
