Project Leads Cat Foley and Alison Down helped us to explore different creative ways to engage with our own histories.
We learned about Graffiti Art and slogan t-shirts, and how they have been used to speak out against injustices and show support for different causes. We then had a go at creating our own versions with masking tape and customising our own tops.
We also made Blue Plaques and dedicated them to the special people in our lives.
Poetry became a really important way for us to express ourselves and ‘speak out’ about what is important to us. You can read two of our poems below.
