A future beyond Voices for the Future

As Voices for the Future enters its final few weeks, Steve Medlin, Artistic Director of Collage Arts, reflects on their Teacher Development Fund (Paul Hamlyn Foundation) learning journey working with teachers and senior leaders from six primary schools in the London borough of Haringey.

“In the blink of an eye, it is almost over. Voices for the Future, part of the Round 5 cohort of TDF funding is near the end of our two-year project that has focused on embedding creative and anti-racist practice in six primary schools across the borough of Haringey. 

We aimed to build the skills, knowledge and confidence of teachers working in primary settings so that they may not only feel comfortable in using the arts in their classrooms but also potentially across their schools with the ultimate golden goal of training their peers in using the same techniques.”
