Arts and creativity in education
We believe in the power of creativity
Complex real-world problems demand fresh, vibrant and innovative solutions. We train our graduates to harness their own creativity and activate those of their students.
Our educators celebrate, nurture and share creativity. As a leader in arts and creativity in education, the Faculty of Education and Social Work at the University of Sydney strives to make an impact through industry engagement and specialised field work.
We teach creativity through our innovative program with schools.
We use drama strategies with imaginative literature to enhance children's English and literacy development.
We engage with creative practitioners in the areas of writing, painting, screenwriting, script writing, illustration, and theatre production.
We nurture the creativity, confidence and wellbeing of young people through creative writing and storytelling workshops.
We have promoted the engagement of Australia's Indigenous peoples and communities by celebrating the talents of Aboriginal writers and thinkers.
We offer graduate and postgraduate units of study that allow teachers to learn more about fostering creativity and the performing arts in their classrooms.
