Schools and Education
Carnival has the ability to reach the parts that other learning cannot reach. Everyone should try it!
Our Carnival in the Curriculum Matrix takes carnival learning into all areas of school life, through traditional subjects like Maths and English, Science, Geography and History, as well as the more obvious creative subjects such as music, dance, media, art and textiles.
We offer Inset training to teachers and teaching assistants as well as youth and community workers to demonstrate creative ways to deliver this. These sessions are very practical, explorative, hands on and fun, also great for team-building.
For 2013 we also developed a term-long Carnival Enrichment Programme for Key Stages 3 and 4. This takes young people through a wide range of carnival skills from head dress and mask making, face and body painting, samba drum and dance, stilt walking, flag waving and more. It has been successfully delivered at Cowes Enterprise College during the summer term and rebooked as it was so popular.
We can also help schools and colleges access visiting and international artists into their schools through our extensive network of carnival artists including calypsonians, steel pannists, wirebenders, stiltwalkers, float and puppet builders, samba and African drummers and dancers.
