I am more excited than I can say

about the seminar I am organising which is tomorrow.
It is on creativity and learning in the context of social regeneration and is here at Sheffield.
Like Anya's seminar series, it is a great line-up.
It is funded by Creative Partnerships and will star the following amazing people:
Pippa Stein from South Africa
Hilary Janks also from South Africa
Barbara Comber from Australia
they have all FLOWN OVER to be at the seminar.
Then we have my wonderful teachers from this project, and Myra Barrs and Cathy Nutbrown on their Creative Partnerships Projects.
Then there is the panel.
Jackie Marsh, Dr Joolz, (back from Plymouth) Gunther Kress and Jennifer.
We are also going to be launching our book Travel Notes from the New Literacy Studies (more nomadic stuff) at the event.

I can't wait.


Joolz said...
