Creativity Workshops for teachers to gain fresh ideas to liven up classes
Organised by the British Council as the strategic creative education partner for the Prudential Eye Programme 2015

The British Council is organising a series of Teacher Creativity Workshops in partnership with Prudential, for secondary school teachers to gain fresh ideas to liven up their classes. As the strategic creative education partner for the Prudential Eye Programme in 2015, the British Council will deliver an interactive creative education workshop that promotes creativity through art and English, at the same time inspires secondary school students and teachers.

Commencing in April, the workshops consist of a range of activities using art as a trigger for the development of 21st century skills, rich language and creative thinking. Selected, age-appropriate works from the Prudential Eye Programme and British Council Collection will be used for the workshops with an aim to produce a resource that will leave a long-term legacy for students and teachers. This Teacher Resource Pack includes activities suitable for an age range of 13 years old to adults, and is designed to stimulate a range of skills including viewing, visual literacy, speaking, writing, reading and role-playing. It is also linked to the local secondary school curriculum with flexibility that allows adaptation for different age-groups and educational contexts.

Notes to Editor

About the Prudential Eye programme

Established in 2008 by David and Serenella Ciclitira and sponsored by the region’s leading life insurer and asset manager Prudential, the Prudential Eye Programme is an initiative that nurtures artistic talent. The programme aims to develop arts infrastructure in territories where this is lacking, in order to provide artists with the platforms, support and recognition they need to develop their careers. It works to build networks and opportunities for artists and galleries through strategic partnerships and a variety of platforms.

Previous projects from the Prudential Eye Programme include Korean Eye (2009 to 2012), Indonesian Eye (2011), Hong Kong Eye (2013) Malaysian Eye (2014) and Singapore Eye (2015): a series of international touring exhibitions and publications providing emerging Asian artists with opportunities to showcase their work. To date, the programme has held 19 exhibitions worldwide, which have been viewed by over two million people. The Programme's latest exhibition, Prudential Singapore Eye, is currently being held at ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay Sands until 28 June 2015.

In January 2014, the Prudential Eye Programme launched the Prudential Eye Awards in Singapore as a platform to honour the accomplishments of emerging artists throughout Greater Asia. The second edition of the Awards was held on 20 January 2015, with ChimPom (Japanese collective) declared as the winner and walking away with the opportunity for a solo show at the Saatchi Gallery.
