About the research

Kerry Chappell, Charlotte Slade and Amy Phillips are working to evaluate and research the development of choreographic understanding and wise humanising creativity for 14 - 21 year olds within this Siobhan Davies Dance project.  This is an exciting three year project working with three cohorts of young people.  It puts choreography in an interdisciplinary arts context and will feature workshopping, appreciation of different art forms and a Choreographic Festival curated by the young people themselves.  The Exeter team will be researching the young people's choreographic development and potential personal change during their time on the project using the wise humanising creativity framework developed by Kerry Chappell and Anna Craft.
