- Our Vision
Joe Harrison-Greaves is a co-founder of the Slow Education movement. Joe’s work in education began over ten years ago as a professional musician working in a wide variety of community and education settings. Over many years and many projects as a musical director and facilitator this developed into practice and consultancy around the role of creativity in education. This in turn lead Joe to develop the philosophy of Slow Education with co-founders Professor Maurice Holt, former BBC Newsnight culture correspondent Madeleine Holt, and Eton Housemaster Mike Grenier. Joe now works with schools developing Slow approaches, as well as supporting the development of music practice in special needs schools, project managing a music education research project co-ordinated by Birmingham City University, and continuing to work as a musician.
