Joel Josephson was invited in April 2013 to give a talk at a TEDx event in Tel-Aviv (Israel), organised by the Kibbutzim College of Education. This British consultant is involved in changing education with holistic projects funded by the European Union.
In his TEDx conference Mr Josephson spoke on the possible future shape of education as a Creative Classroom and how some of the EU Lifelong Learning Projects (LLP) he has initiated or is involved in are using the arts and music to achieve future learning strategies.
A unique simultaneous concert will be held live across five European countries: UK, Turkey Finland, Romania and Spain. School choirs at each venue will perform FolkDc songs, and will be streamed over the internet on 23 April 2013 (times in your area are available on the website).
