New research released today by the Australia Council for the Arts provides powerful evidence for the wide-reaching benefits of creativity in education. Cultivating Creativity: A study of the Sydney Opera House’s Creative Leadership in Learning Program shows creative learning approaches help build confidence, improve academic engagement and prepare young people for future disruption and change. It also transforms teaching staff and the school community. The report reveals that applying creativity has the potential to holistically impact children – academically, socially and emotionally - and enhance learning across a range of academic subjects.
