The aims of this session are;
For participants to leave with practical tasks for the classroom so that teachers can choose, analyse and talk about artists and artwork that affirms identity and explores challenging topics of privilege, class, marginalisation with children and young people.
To have a clearer understanding about the role of art in the changing landscapes of our culture and how art can be used as a research tool in a variety of subjects with even the youngest students.
To be confident in using artwork and ‘artist thinking’ to make shifts towards an ethical and pluralist curriculum and classroom that honours the reality of students’ diverse cultures and experiences.
Session will include a variety of creatively facilitated and interactive techniques, participants will have the opportunity to engage in powerful dialogue around critical themes.
