The DEAPS project will facilitate creative learning opportunities for children (5 to 16 years) in schools by transferring the knowledge of Artist Educators (writers, actors, dancers, musicians, visual artists) to a school context.
DEAPS aims to ensure the positive mental health of young people and reduce ESL by providing spaces for engagement with the creative arts in schools. This will be achieved by our diverse partnership working alongside Artist Educators with a range of artistic practices to transfer their knowledge to teachers and parents of children between 5 and 16 years of age. This will see teachers “crossing boundaries” (Dobson and Stephenson, 2020) to adopt a Teacher-Artist Educator identity.
