Successful Emporium of Dangerous Ideas!

Well ... what an extremely successful Emporium of Dangerous Ideas 2015 that was! With 18 events and over 1,000 delegates in attendance exploring the theme of the two week-festival 'emancipatory education'. With changing curriculum design and delivery - who is being set free? 

The theme was examined during the period with a successful launch on Tuesday 09 June at Govanhill Baths, Glasgow followed by events taking place in various locations across Scotland including Drygate Brewery which was the host to Leadership in 21st Century Education and Business of Brewing, CDN hosting a 'sell-out' Mind Full to Mindful event finishing on Friday 19 June with a Creative Change Exhibition.

The overall aim of the Emporium was to provide opportunities for everyone in education to be inspired, challenged and stimulated to think differently. Ninety eight percent of delegates felt that this aim was achieved.
