Creative Writing as Freedom, Education as Exploration

Creative writing is more than just words on a page; it's freedom. How does an arts education contribute to the development of a child's imaginative freedom? And how does this freedom impact on the rest of their life? A growing body of evidence says the impact is deep and wide. Renowned children's author Libby Gleeson discusses these issues with Professor Robyn Ewing and Teya Dusseldorp. Chair: novelist Debra Adelaide.
