As part of our 2018 Represent! programme we are looking for artists / creative practitioners to help develop and deliver two schools projects that will allow two very different school groups to explore what ‘representation’ means to them. An output of this project will be a final piece to be displayed in the Represent! exhibition.

Falinge Park High School project
Falinge Park sees how hard it is for young people to reconcile their history and the successes that were built through families indigenous to the area and those who are now third or fourth generation immigrants. There is a need to develop a shared history and look forward to creating a new, positive history.
Through this project they aim to be proactive in developing and promoting a harmonious environment and create a sense of shared history and culture between the different groups who live side by side and attend their school.
Manchester Secondary PRU project
Manchester Secondary PRU is a pupil referral unit that works with young people who have experienced real difficulties in mainstream high schools. As well as teaching the core curriculum they are committed to providing a creative programme that helps pupils feel a part of their community. The students have special educational needs, specifically in social, educational and mental health.
The students have a keen interest in digital media. A journalism and/or photography focus would be of interest, however this is not compulsory.
For any questions or queries, please contact the Learning Officer, Liz Thorpe by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 0161 838 9190.
Deadline for applications is midday (12.00pm) on Thursday 4 January 2018.
