The conference was delivered to 120 delegates on 3rd July in conjunction with Chester University’s Recap (Research into Creative Arts Practice) Centre as Day 1 of their post Graduate Research Conference.
John Wm Stephens who leads on Teaching Schools from the National College of Teaching and Leadership was our keynote. John talked about the added value of partnerships in relation to cultural education and provided an excellent start to the conference.
Specialist Leaders in Cultural Education (SLiCE) from across the North West region presented their research papers alongside Ed D, PhD and MA students from Chester University who are undertaking research into aspects cultural education. A significant body of research has been developed by this years SLiCE cohort and will be published on our website later in the autumn. They also had stalls and exhibits of their work from this year’s SliCE programme.
The success of the partnership with Chester University and the positive feedback from conference delegates means we will repeat this next year-1st July 2016-a date for your diary.
