Artists in Creative Education – Pakistan and UK is an international project by Creativity, Culture and Education (CCE), UK; IKON, UK; Vasl Artists Collective, Pakistan; and the British Council Pakistan. The project initially saw 3 UK artists and 3 Pakistani artists on exchange visits, receiving professional development training to enable them to employ their artistic skills effectively in educational settings and being placed in schools in Birmingham and Karachi. As part of the project, a big public event took place on 26 September 2013 in Karachi, featuring a panel discussion with the artists and staff members involved, as well as a presentation by Paul Collard, Chief Executive of CCE. Paul talked about the power of creativity, arts and culture. He explained that learning of drama, design, music, writing or filmmaking could enhance teaching of non-arts subjects and also contribute to a peaceful and collaborative environment. The artists involved in the project have been trained to help change the role of teachers, their organisation of time and space, as well as approach to tasks.
