Currently available to staff working in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, this three-day course has been developed to support social care practitioners to nurture an ethos of creativity in their social work practice. The course can be taken as a training module or an accredited MA Module with an assessment. Taught by social work academics at Goldsmiths University, London, experts by experience, artists and curators, the programme combines theory, practice-based enquiry and group discussion to build the confidence of practitioners to be agile and creative in their work. This course was developed in partnership with Goldsmith's University, South London Gallery, Tate and Serpentine Galleries and artists India Harvey and Albert Potrony.
