Creative Approaches to Democratic Education across the Life Course
  • Room 102, Rolle Building, Plymouth University

Save event

The Centre for Culture, Community and Society along with the Voice, Inclusion and Participation Research Cluster and Learning outside Formal Education Research Cluster invite you to their event entitled ‘Creative Approaches to Democratic Education across the Life Course – Working Together for Change’.

This event aims to introduce projects that take up alternative and democratic ideas in diverse informal or formal education settings, or open up new education spaces. This follows a very successful event at Exeter University, hosted by CREATE, which explored projects to establish creative and more democratic approaches to teaching, learning and working in schools. These events aim to draw together all those interested in imaginative approaches to working for democratic education in diverse settings across the life course.

The session will begin with three provocations followed by group discussions and end with a plenary review.  


  • Professor Jocey Quinn presents her British Academy funded research on Tent City University (Occupy)
  • Drs Cath Gristy, Julie Anderson and colleagues from the South West Cooperative Schools Research Group
  • Drs Joanna Haynes, Marie Lavelle and Cath Gristy invite you to join in their Playing with Age research project
  • Group discussion led by Professor Michael Fielding, Institute of Education, London

Please come and join us for this exciting event and bring your colleagues and friends! Refreshments will be available from 4.30pm.
