Change your Glasses: Global Learning through the Arts


This workshop will lead teachers through a number of activities and approaches in the performing arts that ask children to notice and imagine the inequalities in their own community.

It will explore the meaning of community and the people and roles that comprise it, while looking at ways in which children can affect change in their communities so that all children have the right to food, clothing, a safe place to live, healthcare, education and to practice their own culture, language and religion.
