Key objectives of the measure:

Implementation of Creative Partnerships started in 2011. The goal of this project is to develop
cooperation between creators (artists, culturai sector activists, scientists) and schools by inviting
creators to work together with teachers in schools, so that together with students these teachers
can implement creative and unique projects. It is expected that by the end of the project in 2014
creative learning methods will be used in schools more frequently, and more professional and
creative learning will become part of the majority of all subjects taught at school, and not only
art cIasses. It is expected that these results will be achieved by developing and promoting the
methodology for creative learning, by training teachers and representatives from the creative
sector as well as by establishing long-term relations between schools and representatives from
the creative sector. Creative Partnerships in Lithuania is based on the Creative Partnerships
Prograrnme, which has been operating successfully in the UK for 8 years.
In 2011,43 schools were already involved in the Creative Partnerships project. It is expected that
100 schools will be involved in the Project's activities by the end of 2014, with 200 unique
creative learning projects being implemented and 4,000 students participating .
Creative Partnerships is funded from the EU Social Fund. The Ministry of Education IS
responsible for implementing this Project.
