'Creative Agency / Think Tank' workshops and projects for staff and students. No rules, just a few useful tools to create the exceptional, not the conventional.
Through practical 'real-world' projects and briefs, students will apply new-found creative thinking / design thinking skills to a challenging brief as part of a 'think tank' agency. With people, pens and paper, participants get back to basics of idea generation with the time and space to do it.
Briefs include advertising campaigns, environmental issues, product design, event planning or branding. Timings range from a 2 hour session through to a 2 day intensive workshop.
It’s one step further than a workshop and something of huge benefit both for students and the school community as a whole. Imagine having your students work with local organisations and charities to seek out unique and creative solutions.
Set up as a permanent fixture or as part of existing subjects, students learn how to work as an effective member of a team, drum up unique ideas and liase with organisations to find the very best solutions for them. Learn more here
"Watching some of my identified student excel in such a safe environment where "differences" were encouraged and even applauded was heartwarming and greatly appreciated."
