Diving into a Creative Learning Partnership (CLP) project for the first time can a little daunting! Even if you’re a dab hand at collaborative practice, every partnership is a new experience. So, before your team sets off on this adventure, take some time together to build your roadmap using the CLP Induction Modules – a great starting point for your planning!

Work your way through four induction modules below:

  1. Module One - CLP Induction Intro,
  2. Module Two - Neon Stories - A Case Study
  3. Module Three - Your Concept – an Artistic Framework
  4. Module Four - Curriculum Made Easy!

Refer to the Further Resources in your CLP Team planning sessions.

Module Two - Neon Stories - A Case Study

See how partners Western English Language School, Footscray Community Arts Centre and The Indirect Object navigated their way through a CLP project in 2020.



Module Three - Your Concept - an Artistic Framework

The artistic concept is the idea at the heart of your project. It is the foundation for everything you do!

A good artistic concept is like an ‘elevator pitch’ – snappy, interest-making and easily understood, but open enough for many possibilities. It is a statement of what the creative exploration is all about to engage participants and audience alike.

Review two videos on this page: ‘The Artistic Concept- Getting It!’ and ‘The Perfect Moment’ - A Case Study

Words with Wings – A Curriculum Case Study

Integrating curriculum that’s a ‘natural fit’ is easy! The CLP team from Point Cook P-9 College share how this print-based environmental art and storytelling project was used to weave student's family stories of migration with those of the migratory shorebirds that depend on Point Cook’s local habitat.
