How can we build greener infrastructure in the face of the global climate emergency? In Trade Winds: A Sailing Voyage to a Sustainable Future for Shipping (Manchester UP, 2023), Christiaan De Beukelaer, a Senior Lecturer in Arts and Cultural Management at the University of Melbourne intertwines an depth analysis of modern shipping, with a memoir of being aboard a sailing ship during the 2020 pandemic. The book is a fascinating read, with both an extensive critique of the failures of the global shipping and trade system to be sustainable, as well as offering moving insights into a unique experience of a very different form of 2020's lockdown. Concluding with both the return to land, and a detailed consideration of how shipping, trade, and the world might adapt to the climate crisis, the book is essential reading for anyone interested in a sustainable future for the planet.

How do we facilitate learning that invites inquiry and makes learning purposeful? In this episode of the Fueling Creativity in Education podcast, Dr. Cyndi Burnett and Dr. Matthew Worwood welcome Dr. Penny Hay, an artist, educator, and researcher in the field of culture and creativity. Penny's doctoral research focused on children's learning identities as artists.   Tune in to learn Penny's approach to engaging children in learning through the arts and across the curriculum, what she's discovered in her research about children's learning identities as artists, and how you can start teaching art creatively in your classroom.   “What art does is manifest and make visible creativity daily. So, it's a lovely approach to inviting possibility and a really creative approach to teaching art and design in the primary curriculum.” – Dr. Penny Hay   Penny details the important role of the adult in children's learning, how to reimagine education with an inquiry-based approach, and the power of learning as a shared experience where you are your children's learning companion.   “Imagine a world where our children are engaged in serious creative play, where their environments are full of space and light, where adults are companions in the children's inquiries about the world. Creative adults who show a deep respect for children's ideas, theories, and fascinations.” – Dr. Penny Hay   Penny's Tips for Teachers and Parents: Invite possibility and openness to create an ethos that makes creativity visible. Go with the flow so that you genuinely follow children's fascinations.   Recommended Resources: House of Imagination Forest of Imagination Teaching Art Creatively by Dr. Penny Hay Children are Artists: Supporting Children's Learning Identity as Artists by Dr. Penny Hay Schools Without Walls UK Listen to S1 Episode 6 with Ron Beghetto Listen to S2 Episode 7 with Ron Beghetto Follow Bath Spa University on Instagram Eager to bring more creativity into your home or classroom?

What does Prehistory mean to us now? In Back to the Stone Age: Race and Prehistory in Contemporary Culture (McGill-Queen's UP, 2022), Ben Pitcher, a Reader in Sociology at the University of Westminster, uses cultural studies to explore both the human past and our contemporary life. The book examines how ideas of the prehistoric speak to contemporary anxieties, political projects, and even diets and food choices. Moreover, many of these versions of the past are the basis for regressive political projects that use Prehistory as part of racist and sexist agendas, agendas that need to be resisted and countered with the ideas discussed in the analysis. Engaging with a huge range of cultural and social theory, as well as examples from museums and heritage sites, archaeology, and even scientific hoaxes, the book is essential reading across the arts, humanities, and social sciences, as well as for anyone interested in understanding the society today.

Moreover, many of these versions of the past are the basis for regressive political projects that use Prehistory as part of racist and sexist agendas, agendas that need to be resisted and countered with the ideas discussed in the analysis. Engaging with a huge range of cultural and social theory, as well as examples from museums and heritage sites, archaeology, and even scientific hoaxes, the book is essential reading across the arts, humanities, and social sciences, as well as for anyone interested in understanding the society today.

Dr Christian Morgner is a Senior Lecturer in Cultural and Creative Industries at the University of Sheffield.He was the lead on a study Understanding ethnicity and residential fires from the perspective of cultural values and practices. The Grenfell Tower and Lakanal House fires in London in 2017 and 2009 highlighted how these devasting events mainly affected people from ethnic minorities. While many studies have explored the role of socio-demographic variables in residential fires, ethnicity or race have received only marginal research attention. To redress this imbalance, this paper specifically addresses rate and severity of residential fires in relation to ethnicity. To that end, the study conceptualises ethnicity in a novel way—not as an individual variable but from a community perspective, focusing on cultural norms and practices and how these relate to residential fire incidents.Learn more about this study by clicking HEREListen to every episode & Debrief ever made, get full access to discounts, insider info & support the ongoing work of the podcast by clicking HEREA big thanks to our partners for supporting this episode.William Wood WatchesHAIX FootwearPlease subscribe to the podcast on YoutubeEnter our monthly giveaways on the following platformsFacebookInstagramFitness For the Frontline is coaching designed specifically to reflect the physical elements of the role of a Firefighter for those applying for, currently serving in or retired from the fire service.Designed by Firefighters for FirefightersJoin our Facebook group HERETry the program for FREE HERE Get notified of each Podcast episode as soon as they come out by clicking HEREPlease support the podcast and its future by clicking HERE and joining our Patreon Crew

Every time you download a song, buy a book online or watch a favorite show on a streaming service, the artist who created that content has to share their paycheck with the big tech companies who deliver it. You've heard about monopolies, where sellers hold power over buyers. Now mammoth online retailers and digital entertainment services are creating monopsonies, where the buyers hold power over sellers. And this is killing creative industries say author Cory Doctorow and law professor Rebecca Giblin. They offer creative ways for consumers to help the artists we love get a fair share for their work.

Our next guest is Rebecca Harrison, a brand designer and creative director at global agency Loveblood Creative. Today, Rebecca is based in The Lakes, where she grew up. It's a small village with close family and a tight-knit community. But quite typically, when someone has enjoyed a quieter life as a child, she wanted to experience a different adventure in a big city. And so she packed her bags in 2004 and moved to London, where she studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins. During university, Rebecca admits it was the first time she became aware of her accent and how different she felt compared to others. And deep down, there was this knawing feeling she couldn't shake, which she would later realise was homesickness. In fact, she spent a considerable amount of time and energy trying to feel more at home in London, but it wasn't quite cutting it. Her career, meanwhile, had taken a slight detour as creative jobs were hard to come by, and Rebecca instead found a job and "home" working as a funeral director in North London. It was an experience she believes was the most foundational and inspirational of her career. During that time, she began freelancing on the side, working in graphic design and illustration. On the surface, all was well. But home was calling. She was about to return to the North when she met her now-partner James and moved to Brighton in 2010. That's where they stayed for the next eleven years, and it was where Rebecca cut her teeth at Brandwatch, moving from junior designer to Design Director. Then the pandemic hit – a time that forced many of us to reassess our lives. And so Rebecca and James decided to move back to the Lakes, where she grew up. And that's where she's now happily based, working remotely as part of the team at Loveblood Creative. It's where I travelled north to meet Rebecca in a thriving art and community centre on the outskirts of Penrith. In this episode, we talk about leaving home as a working-class woman and moving to London – how it impacts; the positives and downsides. We talk about the journey many of us embark on to find ourselves and what "home" really means. We discuss how we might become lost, forget our identity and try and be something else to "fit in" and get ahead in our careers. But Rebecca rejoices in the recent epiphany that she no longer needs to comply. She explains, "The creative industry, in many ways, told me that I needed to change to succeed. To be in a certain city or live a particular way of life. I realised how ridiculous these predefinitions are and what we are missing out on as an industry due to our own biases." We discover why she's now choosing to challenge the status quo, shake up what it means to be a successful creative director and why she's instead embracing what's right for her, leaning into her culture and being proud of who she is and what she has to offer.

I'm at a dinner party in this cool, old house that belongs to one of my stepmom Sandy's best friends. This castle-style home stands three stories tall and has winding staircases inside and trees surrounding it. And I'm a fourth-grader surrounded by adults at this get-together. So despite this cool house, I eventually get bored. I'm still sitting in my chair trying to behave, though. Just as we're about to start on dessert, Denise (who lives there) notices my boredom. She takes a leftover dinner roll and chucks it out the window! We're so high up that we never even hear it hit the ground. I look at her in shock as she takes another roll and throws that out the window, too! I ask, “Denise, why do you do that?”  She responds, “Oh, to feed the dragons, of course.” Dragons?!  “You have pet dragons?” I ask. “Yeah, three of them. And they love dinner rolls.” Right then and there, I decided that Denise is one of the world's coolest people and that I too want to have pet dragons. This story has stuck with me ever since I was that 9-year-old because of the possibility. What if there were actually dragons or other magical creatures living among us? That's the premise of the Sam London Adventure books series written by my special guest today, Todd Gallicano. In this episode, he and I talk about how you have your own hero's journey, effective ways to open and close your story, plot twist predictability, and overcoming writer's block. You'll also get answers to questions like: How can you use truth as a springboard for a fictional story? In what way are you on your own hero's journey right now? Should you leave a story open-ended or resolve it for your audience? And what's really responsible for writer's block anyway? What you will learn in this episode: Why the inner journey is so important in storytelling Why the precipitating or inciting incident is an essential element to open a story Why writing yourself into a corner might be the best thing to do for your story Who is Todd? Todd Gallicano is a book author, Hollywood screenwriter, and international speaker who graduated from New York University's School of Film and Television. He began his film career with Italian-born producer Dino De Laurentiis.
