Tackling Serious Education Challenges through Creative Thinking – Showcase

You are invited to attend

The Creative Change Exhibition: Finale for the Emporium of Dangerous Ideas


We asked Scotland’s educators to bring their most complex challenges to the table, to find a Creative Catalyst who matched their needs, and develop their creative thinking together. Armed with new perspectives, fresh approaches, and unusual influences we hope to demonstrate that common education hurdles can be negotiated in innovative and inspiring ways through creative change – using curiosity, open mindedness, imagination and problem solving to influence the world around them and affect truly transformative change.


Come see, hear and experience how they got on. Some projects may not have worked, some may have raised more questions than they answered, but all have changed the way schools, nurseries and educators think.


The nine projects, which addressed a range of themes across primary, secondary and early learning will be showcased as part of the Emporium of Dangerous Ideas on 19th June in Stirling. Visit the website for a full programme, directions and to book your place:
