Igniting a fuse
Subtitled 'developing the creative practices of primary school educators', this fully illustrated 64 page book offers an account of the learning journeys undertaken by a group of educators on Creativity as Practice. Written by Mandy Maddock and Ruth Sapsed with a foreword by Mary Jane Drummond, it was published by Creative Partnerships in 2008.
So as you read this report, and listen to the voices of the CAP participants, I invite you to do the hard work of listening. Listen for the questions that the teachers were wrestling with, listen for the questions they stimulate in you, listen for the values and principles that underpin their stories. Listen for their determination, courage and optimism. Listen for uncertainty, which is not the same as insecurity.
Mary Jane Drummond
