A briefing with artist Holly Graham and Emma Webster, Curriculum Lead at Prendergast, on a new resource pack/set of lesson plans/classroom tools created for schools to aid conversations and creative work around decolonising the curriculum.
Date: 5th November 2020
Date: 08/12/2023 – 08/12/2023
If youre a teacher or educator join CCA online at 4:30pm on November 5th to hear from artist Holly Graham about her new video work and creative resource #FridayFact. They will also be joined by Emma Webster, Curriculum Lead at Prendergast Primary School, who will provide some insights from having tested the programme, and some FAQs from children whove participated.
#FridayFact is a new, cross-curricular resource, to support children and young people to consider their identity and sense of the world around them, in relation to colonialism and its legacies. The resource centres around Hollys newly commissioned artwork focused on the history of sugar production, with lesson plans and supportive materials for four accompanying workshops to engage KS2 learners in discussion, research and creative enquiry.
Session plans touch on themes of movement and migration, histories and storytelling, sugar and slavery, culinary culture, as well as racism and the Black Lives Matter Movement. The workshops introduce different creative skills (printmaking, painting, creative writing and bookbinding) on a journey resulting in whole class publications.
This event will take place online. Please book a ticket through the link below, and you will be emailed with information on joining the conversation, and a full resource pack, a day before the event is due to take place. The format will be quite informal so on the day grab a cup of tea and join with any questions you may have.
