The AIR programme

Visits from an exceptional range of artists helps better prepare students to think laterally and creatively in an increasingly complex and competitive world. The AIR programme gives students of all ages exposure to a wide variety of talents and experiences, stimulating ideas that weave in and support classroom work. These professionals bring with them a window onto the vibrant worlds of theatre, dance, writing, television, science, animation and maths, and enrich the academic curriculum in the process. The students are exposed to people who have creatively expressed ideas in ways that may not be immediately obvious – ways that span many disciplines, and can inspire.

The Artists in Residence (AIR) Programme enables each ACS school to invite guests from outside the academic world into the classroom to enrich the curriculum – believing that education should seek to go beyond the classroom.
