Folk songs in your library?

EFDSDo you have music in your library?  Is your library the hub of cultural activity for your school?  If you have answered yes to either of these questions you may like to be aware of this CPD opportunity from the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS).  Since September 2013, the EFDSS has been delivering The Full English, a national learning programme involving 19 schools (primary, secondary, SEN) across England, with creative learning projects inspired by The Full English digital archive of folk song, dance, tune and custom manuscripts: these have included dance projects at all key stages, from EYFS to students studying dance at GCSE and IB level.

As part of The Full English, EFDSS is delivering professional development training days for teachers, artists and educators to share expertise in engaging young people with folk music, dance and drama, at venues across England. They will also be sharing The Full English ethos and its learnings at a national showcase conference on 25 June 2014 at Town Hall, Birmingham, featuring performances from the participating schools.

The national showcase conference is entitled From Archives to Action! Making folk arts relevant in schools and beyond is being held in Town Hall, Birmingham on Wednesday 25 June 2014.  An inspirational celebration of high quality folk arts projects in schools. A must-attend event for everyone from the education, cultural and heritage sectors.  Book now and save.  Find out more or watch the You Tube trailer. Other dates and venues are available.
