Sensory Learning – Ashfield Academy
Commissioned by Creative Partnerships and the Leicester Comedy Festival
Spacecadets ran a three day residency at Ash Fields Academy, a special needs school in Leicester, working with children and staff to consult and workshop for ideas for the design of an inflatable structure. We examined ways in which inflatable’s can be used as learning tools and could help integrate creativity and creative learning into the curriculum.
The information from the residency was then collated in the form of video and slide shows and worksheets and fed back to the designer at the studio. This work was used to inform the design of an inflatable space. The school was updated on all aspects of the design process from then on. A special unveiling day was held at the school to celebrate the new space. The whole process was documented and made onto a DVD.
