An Anthology of Un-Kept Secrets An emotive and empowering insight into the hearts and minds of young South Australians.

IN SCHOOL

Co-Investigators of Creativity By Lovelands and Australian Science and Mathmatics School Learn how the arts are a powerful tool for changing the brain (neuroplasticity), as well as promoting mental health, wellbeing and developing a sense of community.

An Anthology of Un-Kept Secrets is a book of real, living feelings, revealed and written by young people and curated by award winning playwright Sally Hardy. In the months leading up to DreamBIG, Sally will hold creative workshops in metro and regional schools, where students will be invited to uncover the feelings they think no one else would understand. These will become part of An Anthology of Un-Kept Secrets, which will be on display throughout DreamBIG. Students will be able to leaf through this book, discovering the secret feelings of people their own age. It will provide young readers with a powerful insight into the love, fears, hopes and humour that lies within us all no matter how different we may appear to be.

In School Workshops To participate in this project, please send a half page proposal by Friday 1 February 2019 describing why your class would benefit from this experience to dreambig@adelaidefestivalcentre.com.au with the subject line ‘An Anthology of Un-Kept Secrets’ This offer is available for Years 4–9 in IoED category 1–5 schools. If you do not fit this category but would like to book and pay for an artist in residence with Sally Hardy, please contact us and we can help facilitate this.

This fascinating workshop endeavours to make the invisible visible, integrating the tools of neuroscience and the arts to explore the five pillars of SAHMRI’s positive psychology research, PERMA (Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment). Year 10, 11 and 12 students from the Australian Science and Mathematics School (ASMS) will spend Term 1 working with teaching artists Eliza Lovell and Kerrin Rowlands to develop the workshop. They will introduce your upper primary students to the wonders of neuroscience through this hands-on inquiry-based workshop. As Albert Einstein said, “creativity is contagious, pass it on”.
