Nimble Fish has just been green-lighted to create and produce Space to Learn, an arts-led exploration of non-traditional teaching and learning spaces in Southend. The project is being supported by Royal Opera House Creative Partnerships and the Southend Education Trust and will involve work with multiple artists and schools.
We’re really excited about Space to Learn, as it is a natural successor to the Learning Town Project, that wonderful bit of site-responsive, learning-focused, arts-led madness that we undertook last spring and summer. What the projects have in common is a desire to stretch the parameters of where and how we learn, and looking at novel ways to use the arts and arts-based creative practice to make that happen. Space to Learn will begin in the spring and we’ll keep you posted as it develops.
