Animation, Informal Education and Creativity

Animation, Informal Education and Creativity
Animation, informal education and creativity
  • Informal learning is understood as a practice of animation.
  • Play and imagination are essential underpinnings of informal learning as animation.
  • Arts-based informal learning enables access to important sources of creativity throughout adolescence and adult life: examples of practice come from theatre, dance, music and from the visual arts.
  • Creativity draws on both active and passive aspects of the self. The contemporary climate in education values activity over passivity and the disciplines of waiting and non-effort. There is a danger that, in this climate, creativity in youth work will be lost.
