"Creativity and Literacy Show" in Melbourne
This weekend sees The Education Show taking place in Melbourne. The show will feature the latest products, resources and services for schools and featuring an extensive professional development programme, including a unique 'Puppetry in Education' stall featuring Melbourne-based 'Dream Puppets' and yours truly, Sydney-based 'Gary Friedman Productions'. We became more involved in both primary and high school education earlier this year, when we received at Artists in Residence grant to work in a few school's in northern Sydney. (In the short film, above, you can view the work in a short interview with Jan Warhurst, vice-principal of Curl Curl Public School in Sydney).
The Education Show at the Caulfield Racecourse in Station Street, Caulfield in Melbourne on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 August from 10am to 4pm and entry is free to the public. Their will be some provocative seminars taking place on both the days. For info click here! Incidently for those of you interested in education and if you haven't seen Sir Ken Robinson's address to TED in California on "Do school's kill creativity?" It is an important thought provoking piece, so click here.
