To suit the Action to the Word, the Word to the Action


We need imagination, empathy and invention…

… to create our worlds well and for the future.

Which means imagination, empathy and invention must be stimulated and encouraged, especially in children. Performance is one of the greatest ways to do this, with arts in general incredibly strong here.

Changes to school curricula, cuts re. arts and libraries, and opinions that restrict the value given to certain aspects of performance / expression are truly worrying, completely opposing important understandings addressed here:

Lyn Gardner on the value of children’s theatre –http://www.theguardian.com/stage/theatreblog/2013/oct/23/why-childrens-theatre-matters

Neil Gaiman on the power of reading – http://www.theguardian.com/books/2013/oct/15/neil-gaiman-future-libraries-reading-daydreaming

Agree, or disagree – fully or partially – what do you think?
