Explore ways of using photography and visual material to support pupils to think differently about race, representation, identity, citizenship and human rights.

Join Ali for a tour of Autograph’s exhibition, Care | Contagion | Community — Self & Other, followed by a hands on photography workshop inspired by the gallery’s extensive archive. Comprising over 5,000 diverse photographs, the archive is an important resource for exploring issues of race, identity, migration, citizenship and multiculturalism, belonging and community.

This session is open to Islington educators working across the curriculum, including within visual arts, citizenship, history, literacy, sociology and PHSE.
