Two opportunities to participate in the 2015 IB Peterson Academic Symposium

peterson-symposium-2014The IB is inviting leaders in the field to join us at the IB Peterson Academic Symposium 2015: Making time for creativity: why does it matter? The symposium will take place on 23 and 24 of April 2015. The event is aimed at provoking questions and stimulating new thinking on the role of creativity in schools, further education, industry and beyond.

The two-day event will begin with a series of fast-paced, stimulating ten minute talks, short film submissions from schools on creativity, a no-holds-barred debate, and thinking about the development of IB programmes. There are two exciting opportunities for schools to participate.
