The Creative Academy centres around Clements and Ingleson’s notion of creativity centred learning. Involving single structure learning platforms (tiered engagement, ‘sliding scale’ benchmarks and achievements) with peer/inter-relational, (community/project driven) experienced based learning. It allows enterprise-structured frameworks for self-directed learning, opening access to common knowledge and encouraging inter-institutional collaborations. Creating opportunities for extra-curricular, informal learning cohorts, with the capacity of building in schools and cross-disciplinary creative education. The Creative Academy is the general heading for a range of initiatives that all conspire to support a more inclusive and encouraging educational environment in the UK’s North West region, one where creativity can provide access to learning and a resource for the community. An aim of The Creative Academy is to extend the impact of the university and outreach to both established enterprise in the Creative Content sector and to new practitioners and participants. This paper will outline aspirations for the School of Art and Design’s Community Engagement Team, through the exploration of three separate case studies that demonstrate the Creative Academy’s principles of collaboration and intervention through non-formal and extended learning platforms.
