“WE must put ‘Creativity first’ in this country. It Inspires Children, Innovates Business and Engages Community. It Connects.
We need real role models for our children
A report in this week’s Times Education Supplement reveals that as many 34.1% of young boys surveyed wanted to be a famous sportsperson, yet only 2.14% wanted to be a mechanic.
We must tap into our children’s obsession with celebrity and use it to inspire them.
I walked the talk
So, eight years ago, inspired by Sir Ken Robinson’s No 1 TED talk on creativity I co-founded a social enterprise in my sons’ primary school in Paddington, called STEAM Co.
