In today’s tightly focused educational landscape it is frequently forgotten that the richness of human experience consists of more than just the ability to achieve high academic grades.
Alice Wilson Milne takes us on an intensely personal journey that details her own experiences of the difficult birth and growth of a superbly innovative school for art and creativity in New Zealand, The Learning Connexion (TLC).
Two Wings to Fly is an account of how this school’s unique environment fosters the spark of personal creativity, revealed through the vehicle of art.
The physics of two wings enables flight and is a metaphor for the balance of efficiency with resilience that can lead to highly creative outcomes and sustainable practice.
Alice narrates the brave and truly inspiring development of TLC, from a small school of art and creativity to become a leading hub of creativity in New Zealand, and beyond.
It is an extraordinary book, a must read for anyone interested in the eclectic nature of creativity, education, the arts, and business development.
