The Creative Schools team have been developing an online support for learners and their families during school closures.

CSTV will bring the work of our Creative Associates right into homes while attendance at our schools is limited by the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

Each week a different Creative Associate will introduce a new lesson on YouTube. Lessons will explore an area of creativity, from photography, to dance, to drama, to music – depending on the speciality of the Creative Associate. And we want children and young people to share their creativity with us and show us what they’ve learned from each lesson. They can share their creative work to the Creative Schools team using a CSTV Submission Form. Each week we'll show off all the creativity inspired by last week's lesson! You can view all the episodes of CSTV on the Arts Council's YouTube channel. Further supports will be developed in the coming weeks and shared on CSTV.
