More exciting work with Hull Museums Education Service

Hull Museums Education Service, together with the British Library and Museums, Libraries and Archives Yorkshire (MLA Yorkshire) havre asked us to get involved in a programme of work relating to citizenship, identity and campaigning, following on from the succesful Making an Impact Young Campaigners project we developed at Winifred Holtby School earlier in 2007.

In the first phase we’re planning on working with pupils from Hull’s inner city Endeavour Secondary School, making a series of short films focussing on the views and stories of people from other countries who have chosen to settle in Hull.

A later phase will see us working with pupils to develop documentary photographic, journalistic and campaigning skills for an exhibition and book exploring the identities and lives of the pupils themselves.

Exciting stuff and a great project to be involved with.

Hull Fair Travellers School

Another exciting project… During the two weeks of Hull Fair, the city council runs a temporary school for the children of the families who run the fairground attractions. We’re really looking forward to working closely with the school on another photography and journalism-based project which will document the lives and views of the children who travel with the fair.

It will be fascinating for us to learn more about their lives, meet their families, and – of course – we’ll all be making work which will provide a unique insight into on of Europe’s biggest and oldest fairs.

The end result will be a book (which will be available to order – details soon) and a series of short Photo Story films.

Restorative Practice

Before summer we began work documenting the pioneering Restorative Practice work being developed by Estelle MacDonald, head of Hull’s Collingwood Primary School.

We’re currently editing interviews with pupils and expect to be back in school soon to finish the job and we’ll post the film on the site when it’s complete.

Keep an eye on the site for details of how work progresses and new jobs as they come up…
