Identity day at Manchester Museum


I recently did a day working with groups of students at Manchester Museum around the topic of identity. As a large group we talked through different idenites using a variety of shoes and then they made individual textile pieces around their own idenity, using symbols and colours to convey themselves to others without using words. It has made me aware of the possibilities of working with children more and the potential for applying for funding where work with children is included in the development of the project. I love the two way nature of collaboration as I get just as much out of the experience as I hope the children do.
