URGENCIES (2023): School's Programme
We are delighted to share with you our new School’s Programme workshop for the exhibition URGENCIES (2023). Artist educator Sarah McNabb designed an activity for the school children to do in the gallery. To develop the workshop Sarah visited the exhibition and drew on ideas of typography, headlines and current issues.
The children had a tour of the exhibition, followed by the activity. In groups they discussed headlines such as 'Climate Emergency', 'Cost of living crisis', 'Nurses and ambulance workers on strike', 'Gender Pay gap' and 'Free school meals for school children'. They produced illustrations based on each headline, then the work was collaged together into posters to take back to the schools. A big thank you to the schools for being part of this activity and to the children for all their hard work.
