Working as Artist in Residence with young people at Bradford Academy recently in the production of funky graphics across four large circular boards. The design challenge was based on the Academy Value Contract (AVC) that students agree to adhere to. It is always great fun working at this school. Both staff and Students are equally enthusiastic for the creative process. All artwork has been digitally reproduced and is now displayed in the school.

What will it look like, sound like and feel like if all learners from BA work/play fair?
We will be fair, respectful and make sure everyone is valued in the school community. We will ensure everyone is motivated and be part of a team. We will also be given opportunities and be equally supported.
What will it look like, sound like and feel like if all learners from BA work/play safe emotionally?
We will not judge others for their individuality and we will respect everyone’s opinions and thoughts by treating everyone how we would like to be treated.
What will it look like, sound like and feel like if all learners from BA work/play hard?
We will, to the best of our ability, give 100% effort with pride and enthusiasm. This will help us to find our personal balance between working, playing and relaxing in order to reach our full potential.
