Creative Critics: Seeing Doing Knowing is an arts
intervention questioning who art is for and valuing children as audience
members and arts critics. It encourages children’s deep engagement with art,
celebrates their voices, showcases their responses to art and develops critical
appreciation, communication and writing skills.
The Bury Festival welcomes Christina Birt Projects back
after last year’s success with Creative Critics; and this time in partnership
with three Suffolk schools, All Saints CEVA Primary, Glade Primary and Woolpit
The young critics attended performances during the
festival (Edwin Sanz Salsa Orchestra, Honk!, John Law: Goldberg, Brahms 1 from
Memory and Silk String Trio) and produce reviews which will be available
in the Bury Free Press and on the Bury Festival website.
