I attended a 'Festival of Ideas' at the Carriageworks this morning...

The 'Festival of Ideas' was a unique collaboration between the Innovation Exchange and Education Leeds focused on creative ideas for dealing with challenging behaviour. It brought together colleagues from the public sector from Bradford, Leeds, Kirklees, North Yorkshire and Wakefield and colleagues from the third sector from across Yorkshire and the Humber. My colleagues Brian Hogg, Wendy Winterburn and Danielle Brearley worked with Raj Cheema and John Craig from the Innovation Exchange to deliver this brilliant event where everyone who attended learned about some great ways of working with young people with challenging behaviour.

This model of looking at creative and innovative approaches to key issues provides us with a way of addressing the really difficult issues we face here in Leeds and I hope we can continue to work with the Innovation Exchange to develop more Festivals of Ideas.
