Sir Ken Robinson 1950-2020

One of the most respected, vocal and popular advocates for creativity in Education, Sir Ken Robinson, has passed away after a short illness with cancer.

In a tweet posted today, it was announced that the Liverpool-born professor died on the 21st August 2020 surrounded by his family.

We were honoured to have met and spoken to Sir Ken during his visits to London, where crowds of educators would swarm to hear his words of wisdom advocating for education systems to allow young people to thrive in all subjects through creativity.
