Description

This methodology book provides a long-awaited articulation of Kids’ Own’s artistic and creative practice with children and young people.

Kids’ Own has held a central role as a leading national organisation within the sector, supporting and developing arts practice with children and young people, and taking an uncompromising view on the importance of how we work.

What is meaningful collaboration?
What is meaningful collaboration?

Children instantly know when your interest is real. They can sense fakery.

For the child to feel like, and be, individual, be themselves, feel valued, in an environment where there are 30 uniforms.

– Participants on our Iniscoo retreat

As Kids’ Own now inches towards its 25-year anniversary, it seems timely to take the opportunity to interrogate some of the values and approaches that underpin our work; to take stock in order that we may never take for granted the importance of what are doing – and the why and how of it.

– Jo Holmwood, Kids’ Own Creative Director
