Creative Arts has been active internationally in the design and delivery of arts-based education programmes for over 15 years.  In addition to a long standing commitment to Japan we have established significant training courses and implementation workshops in Spain, South Africa, Scandinavia, the UK, and the US.

Using the arts as a means of stimulating effective cross-curricular involvement in schools, and sustainable community-based interventions, we bring an innovative and unique approach to education which synergises well with the aims and objectives of GEC Group.

In Japan we have designed and implemented many training programmes for teachers, and together with Ueno Gakuen are working towards the establishment of a more formalised course of instruction. Over a period of more than 12 years, in partnership with the Association of Japanese Symphony Orchestras, we have helped to establish strategic education and outreach programmes with almost all its membership; some 24 orchestras.  We have also long term relationships with many performing venues, and in 2008 were invited to give the first large scale music workshop in Japan at the Kioi Hall (Tokyo) with the support, and in the presence of, Her Royal Highness, the Empress Michiko.

We have written extensively on the importance of the integration of arts processes within education systems and in 2008 were key note speakers at a special gathering organised by the Geidankyo which reviewed current educational practice in Japan.

We look forward to a long and productive relationship with GEC Group, and the development of new and effective education programmes appropriate for a new global context.
