Liverpool Learning Partnership and the Sister Gwen Appleton Trust are funding six secondary schools to take part in this programme which is engaging 135 young people from diverse backgrounds.
Throughout the academic year they are experiencing workshops with ethnically diverse artists, exploring how art expresses cultural heritage and identity. They are also visiting local galleries and artist studios, and learning about how art expresses thoughts, feelings, ideas and beliefs.
The next step is for them to express their collective voice by creating an art work with a professional artist, inspired by their hopes and dreams for the future. These will be exhibited at the International Slavery Museum in summer 2022.
They wish to recruit artists with lived experience of racism and discrimination, who because of their race or ethnicity are put at a systemic disadvantage. This particular protected characteristic is an occupational requirement to provide appropriate support when facilitating discussion about race, racism and discrimination.
