School of Imagination
Mike Chunn ('70)
‘School of Imagination’ Patron; CEO, Play It Strange Trust
“We live in special times. We live in times where the opportunity to advance the imaginative crafts of song writing, stage performance, recording, film making, photography, painting, online media, creative writing (poetry, scripts, librettos etc) while at school is in demand from students. Those various adventures in creative endeavour are poised to be available.
The ‘School of Imagination’ project at Sacred Heart College will offer an environment where feedback, guidance, mentoring and coaching are paramount. As in the arena of sport - experts will be brought in so that the results are so much more than a collection of marks and grades
The School of Imagination will see not only individual applications in these various art faculties but they will merge so that films, musical theatre, albums of recorded songs and the marketing and business of creative products will be understood and celebrated ‘in action’.”
"It's a new era and it is a revolutionary stance"
