Creative Toolbox

The idea for a Creative Toolbox came from an effective collaboration between Imagine Rotherham and Create Sheffield. We could see the need to prioritise creativity and culture in formal education, and doing this in partnership would enable both Local Cultural Educational Partnerships (LCEPs) to develop their offer to become more sustainable.

If you want to find out more, support or get involved with Imagine Rotherham LCEP please get in touch at

Imagine Rotherham is the Local, Cultural and Education Partnership.

At Imagine Rotherham we want to embed arts and creativity into formal education in Rotherham, to excite, inspire and delight all children and young people. We want to develop an inclusive, high quality and creative workforce that can confidently embed creative approaches to teaching and learning into everyday practice to enrich lives and enhance learning. We offer the following;

   Professional development and mentoring for both educationalists and creative             

      practitioners, to develop inspiring creative experiences and opportunities for children and

      young people in Rotherham.

   Arts Award support in formal education, assisting more schools and creative practitioners to

      formally connect with  the programmes and existing networks.

   Creative teach-meets, where both teachers and creative practitioners can meet, share

      practice, resources and approaches. 

   A creatives network and an education network that enables practice sharing and support

      from peers.
