Creative Court UK – Education Outreach in Schools

A creative approach to learning about Citizenship, Justice and the Law using the National Justice Museum’s ‘Pop-up Courtroom’.

The Creative Court UK project is an Arts Council England (ACE) funded outreach programme run by the National Justice Museum in partnership with their education sites in Nottingham, Manchester and London.

Using an artist designed ‘Pop-up Courtroom’, the Creative Court Learning team will visit schools around Nottingham, London and North West from November 2017 to February 2018 providing an interactive learning opportunity for children and young people to learn about the law, how to be responsible citizens and what difference they can make to the future of law-making.

What are the key aims of the Creative Court UK project?

  • To give young people a greater awareness and understanding of British Values, Civic Responsibility and the Law
  • To create an interactive learning space within schools using a ‘pop-up courtroom’ and associated resources that are adaptable and transportable to varied locations
  • To incorporate a handling collection box, created using object and replicas from the National Justice Museum collection
  • To enhance creative awareness and interpretation of the courtroom process to identify ways that interaction with Art and Culture can generate greater community participation
  • To engage with hard-to-reach communities and provide valuable education outreach
  • To ensure that both the ‘pop-up courtroom’ and the associated learning sessions will be appropriate for a range of audiences of different learning abilities. They will be suitable for use with children and young people and be interactive and functional within a learning environment
