The International Creative Education Network (ICEnet) is a worldwide network that aims to connect artists and creative professionals to improve the quality of practice and to provide opportunities for cooperation. It focuses on the unique role that creative professionals play in the development of creative skills in children and young people. Our overall concept for ICEnet can be summarised as Unlocking children's creativity, making artists the key.

Welcome to our online platform. Here we encourage you to share your personal experiences, opinions, good practices, photographs, videos and other useful information you come across. You can also ask questions and get advice and support from this growing international network of creative practitioners. Hello and welcome!
