Deploying Artful Leadership in Teaching and Learning with Rachelle Archer
What is Artful Leadership, and how might it help facilitate creativity in teaching and learning? In this episode of the Fueling Creativity podcast, Dr. Cyndi Burnett and Dr. Matthew Worwood speak with Rachelle Archer, an arts-based consultant & founder of Artful Leadership. The episode shares Rachelle's 25 + years of experience working at the intersection of arts, education, and healing, primarily with unhoused and systems-affected youth. Discussions include how artful leadership can help students reflect and connect as they interact and engage with others around them.
“Learning happens when we feel safe and when we feel connected to others in a space; it's not just something that happens inside our brains.” - Rachelle Archer
Rachelle’s Tips for Teachers and Parents:
- Start with your own curiosities. Don't do anything major.
- Find out what your students enjoy. Pleasure is a helpful entry point to creativity.
- Avoid judgment in terms of this is good or bad, instead celebrate whatever emerges from the experience.
