The Sydney Opera House specialises in long term teaching artist projects with a particular focus on exploring creativity in education. The physical building of the Sydney Opera House is at the heart of all projects. This course will focus on place as an enabling driver of developing creative projects, and complement the skills learnt in the first three courses.
Teaching artists work with communities based in all kinds of physical places and spaces. In this course students explore how architecture, location and environment can be used by teaching artists as a springboard for shaping purpose, and developing projects. By provoking new ways of seeing location through play, experimentation and questioning, place can inspire teaching artists to bring personal and political lenses to activate the artistry of others in situated, relevant and unexpected ways.
