Children's workshop on learning spaces at Siobhan Davies Dance



Running in parallel to the discussion will be a movement-based discussion workshop for children aged 7 - 11.  Led by Adesola Akinleye the children will use choreography to explore the same themes, looking at their ideal learning spaces




Architecture and the Responsive Body in Children's Education
Panel Discussion with Siobhan Davies, Neil Pinder and Sarah Wigglesworth


Join us in our RIBA award-winning studios for a discussion considering the impact that education spaces have on learning, the body and movement
How is the privatisation of school spaces impacting on young people’s learning and creatives responses?
How does the lack of outdoor space and the pressure on indoor space in schools impact on development and learning?
How does an architect include the perspective of a dance artist and choreographer to create an educational space that stimulates creative responses?
 
These are some of the questions we will be covering in this discussion led by architect Sarah Wigglesworth, educationalist Neil Pinder and choreographer Siobhan Davies.  Exploring the overlaps between the body, architecture and children's learning, this conversation will prompt us to consider the architectural impacts on learning and development.

The event will be held at our fully-accessible studios in Elephant and Castle on Thursday 6th June, 5pm-7.30pm and costs £5.

Join us for what will be an engaging, informative and thought-provoking session.
