Interfaith Childhoods: common threads found through art
- Room 423b, School of Education
- Lectures Talks and Workshops, Social Sciences
Interfaith Childhoods is the first arts-based school and community interfaith action research programme that uses collective art practices to understand and change how interfaith young people relate to each other.
This workshop for teachers is led by Anna Hickey-Moody, the leader of Interfaith Childhoods. She will outline the ideas behind the work she does with children, teachers and communities, and explore with teachers how they could use art to promote interfaith childhoods in a diverse city such as Birmingham. This workshop will include examples of 3 lesson plans that form the initial stages of encouraged collaboration featured in Interfaith Childhoods and a theory of change impact map that has been developed as a guide for teachers and community workers, to support their work for social empathy and togetherness.
The workshop is hosted by Deborah Youdell of the School of Education, University of Birmingham and Ayisha Ali and Razia Butt of Birmingham City Council.
This workshop is specifically for teachers and other educators.
