Enriching Experiences

Art outside the Classroom 

During a recent trip to the International Slavery Museum, we seized the opportunity to flex our creative muscles and sketch some of the historic artefacts. We were also fascinated by the artistic depictions of slavery, and were moved by some of the poignant quotes about slavery, freedom and liberty. Through exploring the artworks, we were able to begin to understand how harrowing an experience it was for those people who were forced into the slavetrade. We also discussed the vital importance of 'Art in society' and how it helps to ensure that we never forget the victims of slavery...
