Creative Learning Partnerships (CLP)

Creative Learning Partnerships (CLP)

Creative Learning Partnerships provides the opportunity for Victorian schools to partner with creative professionals or arts and cultural organisations.  It involves school communities in creative partnership projects while providing students, teachers and creative professionals with diverse and challenging learning experiences.  The program generates innovative ways to engage students across the curriculum from Foundation to Year 10.

 

Background

Creative Victoria is bringing together its two Education Partnerships school residency programs, Artists in Schools (AIS) and Virtual Creative Professionals in Schools (VCPS), into the new CLP program. The new, broader program will allow schools to partner with individual creative practitioners or creative organsations and for projects to roll out flexibly – either face to face or via virtual communication platforms.

CLP aims to show how creativity can enhance and advance education outcomes across the curriculum.
