The CREANET Network aims at developing a European forum for discussion, research, exchange of best practices on creativity in pre-school education from a multidisciplinary and cross-institutional perspective. In particular, the theme of creativity will be approached by focusing on two specific aspects: creativity and contexts (spaces, materials, relations)and expressive languages(artistic and verbal languages, body language).The network is centred on three main sets of activities: 1- The research activities will be aimed at developing a European approach to creativity in pre-schools through literature review, fieldwork and action-research.2- The exchange of best practices among pre-schools will be taking place in the framework of two working groups on "contexts" and "expressive languages".3- The annual conferences aim at developing new projects, presenting the results of the research and the exchange of best practices and promote debate among policymakers on issues related to creativity in pre-school education.The main products will be: Guidelines on creativity in the pre-school educational context (aimed at policy / decision makers); a DVD and a virtual exhibition showcasing the best practices of the network and an edited academic book resulting from the work done by the universities.
