The BCB engagement team works with talented artists on a number of projects within the community and education sector in Stoke-on-Trent. The main aim of this work is to investigate if clay/creativity can have a positive impact on people’s lives. There are two main areas of work within BCB’s engagement with the local community and in formal education.
We are currently concentrating our work within changing communities in the City. We test how creativity can communicate or help plan a period of transition or change.
We also work in a number of health settings. How can creativity have an impact on physical/mental health or help people through the recovery process?
Schools, Colleges & Universities
BCB works within the education sector to reignite the use of clay. We also work within primary and secondary education and complete teacher training.
