ARTICULATE PROGRAMMES AND PROJECTS:

Articulate projects focus on creative habits of mind, where we use the arts as a stepping stone to creativity, a high-value commodity in the workplace of the future.  Our work is:

 

  • asset-based, person-centred and relational 

  • Social Pedagogy, SEL and creative learning pedagogies combined

  • teaching artists that are of the highest calibre and their practice is trauma-informed 

  • rooted in robust evidence and research including around the arts and neuroscience

  • impact-driven with emphasis on quality, authentic co-design and creativity with partners and participants.
     

In practice this means:

 

  • arts education, creative learning and cultural practices, including digital, are prioritised

  • 16 industry-wide art-forms are employed to benefit marginalised Scots

  • the creative outputs, productions, exhibitions and events, are of industry-standard

  • creative voice is nurtured for social, educational and economic improvement (Artivism)

  • Arts Award accreditation through Trinity College, London is available to all participants.

 

The strategy for our journey over the next five years has five pillars for our focus:
 

  • the arts and creativity as a connector between culture and care

  • awareness and advocacy, including children’s rights to the arts and culture

  • child growth and development, including physical and mental well-being being nurtured

  • skills and workforce development, scaffolding for young people, teachers, social workers and artists.

  • places and spaces, including digital, where the ability to flourish and thrive is cultivated.
