School Without Walls aimed to transpose ‘school’ into an arts environment or cultural setting, inviting teachers and children to interrogate and reshape teaching and learning in and through the arts. The programme sought to transform teachers’ ‘philosophies as educators’ and give children ownership to explore and express their ideas and engage with the arts and culture in their locality. The project was run by the Bath Cultural Education Partnership – a partnership between 5x5x5=Creativity, the Egg Theatre, Bath Festivals, Mentoring Plus and Bath Spa University Institute for Education. This pilot project ran from June 2016 to July 2017.
