Be Creative Backstories is an Arts Council England funded project running through the Summer Term of 2014. Twenty schools have the opportunity of receiving a visit from the Be Creative team of specialist music educators and musicians, who work alongside the children to help write, play, record and perform an original song. (Each class will record their own song.)
Each song will be a unique take on the Backstories project themes of sharing:
- our family and cultural histories
- our experiences as a community
- connections we have with the wider world
Please use this space and the ideas in this blog to continue the journey of looking back to help inform your creativity in the present.
