We are committed to exploring how to communicate our impact and evidence in accessible and inclusive ways that foreground our values of creativity and community.
There is a wealth of resources about CCI’s work that are free to explore online here. Some are available in print and can be posted for a small donation to the Charity’s work.
Members of the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education were part of CCI’s original founding group and helped to shape our distinctive and rigorous approach to documentation and reflection from the start. Early publications written with these colleagues continue to underpin our approach to working with schools – particularly Enemies of Boredom and Igniting a Fuse.
More recently we have worked with artist writers Gabby Arenge and Emily Dowdeswell and artist Susanne Jasilek to create research outputs – we prefer to call them ‘artputs’ - that can be experienced in new ways. A Call for Spaces of Liberated Learning and Being Together Differently (shown above) summarise learning from projects in unique interactive formats.
CCI has worked closely with Professor Nicola Walshe at University College London and founder of the new Centre for Climate Change and Sustainability Education since 2021 and this work has particularly informed our schools programmes and ongoing advocacy work with policy makers. Since 2022, we have worked with Nicola, the wider Fullscope network and Professor Hilary Bungay from Anglia Ruskin University on a national research programme foscused on new approaches to tackling health inequalities. This is coordinated by the new National Centre for Creative Health and has been funded through a first-time collaboration between 3 major research councils – MRI, AHRC and NERC.
CCI has written on the role of creative activism with Dr Penny Hay at Bath Spa University and Dr Esther Sayers at Goldsmiths University and works closely with these colleagues and Susan Coles, Vice President of InSEA (International Society for Education through Art) to advocate for change.
