Paul Collard, WA"s former Thinker in Residence and Chief Executive of the international foundation Creativity, Culture & Education (CCE), returns to Perth to deliver a Transformance keynote and workshop.

CCE has devised and implemented programmes in thousands of schools around the world - including Perth - all intended to improve and deepen the learning of children and young people by fostering their creativity.

Paul will draw from this experience to provide examples of learning environments which improve the quality of learning, and explore whether the principles of learning environment design differ between cultures.



Explore the spirit of Fremantle in its education West End

Lance Holt School

The West End of Fremantle is an important heritage precinct, largely dominated by late Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian buildings that date back to the beginnings of the colony in 1829.

The ethos of the Lance Holt School is underpinned by connectedness to community and sustainability. As an inner-city school in a historic precinct, the school benefits from and contributes to the surrounding community and natural environment. The school has strong links with Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, Notre Dame University, City of Fremantle and the Maritime Museum.

Winner of an Australian Institute of Architects Public Architecture award, The Tannock Hall of Education is the second purpose-built new university building on the University of Notre Dame Australia’s Fremantle campus.

Widely used by the University and the public, Tannock Hall is designed to be sympathetic to the existing scale and materials of its heritage, as well as clearly contemporary.
