September's Theme: Reimagining Education
September marks a season of fresh ideas and new goals - this year more than ever. As we all navigate this next phase of life right now, many seek to upskill and start something anew, others to shift their approach to ongoing projects.
With the return of colleges and universities, students and tutors are delving deep to find engaging, interesting and inclusive ways of showcasing creative work and maximising student experience.
At September’s Creative Circles, we’ll be exploring these alternative approaches shaping a new chapter in education. Join us as we hear first hand from the students and tutors behind the projects and celebrate the inspiring results that can come from hard times.
