It was a Tuesday night like any other. I was musing on the day’s events on Twitter, especially the proposed changes to the National Curriculum. One of these is the abolition of so-called ‘soft’ GCSE subjects like Drama, Media Studies and PE. Inspired by a community of passionate educators and practitioners I decided I’d had enough of armchair activism. It was time to take matters into our own hands. I suggested a meeting to discuss the next action point in person and got up to make a cup of tea. Within seconds, my Twitter timeline was buzzing with responses from teachers, directors and other professionals who wanted to get involved. So the campaign to save the Arts in schools was born. This website was set up for members of the campaign to share their experiences and opinions on the value of Arts subjects in schools. It will also be used to share news of what I hope will be a successful campaign!
