What happens when you suspend the school timetable for 3 weeks and give students full creative control? Follow the journey of teachers and students of Liverpool Boys High School in Western Sydney, as the traditional school structure is turned on its head and creativity takes the reins.
The Takeover is the culmination of Sydney Opera House’s flagship three year program - Creative Leadership in Learning. The students of Liverpool Boys High School are given creative autonomy over their learning for a second year running but this time, all 480 students are involved.
The consequence? A divisive, challenging but inspired undertaking as the teachers of this culturally diverse high school need to unlearn and relearn their practice.
