Lewisham Migration Stories
A large scale creative arts project working with Lewisham’s Tackling Race Inequalities in Education steering group (funded by Lewisham Learning) and primary and secondary schools.
This exciting new project aims to celebrate the diversity of Lewisham’s communities and to inspire children to learn more about the Lewisham’s history and the stories of its people.
A new professional performance "A Place for Me" has been devised by the company, inspired by the reminiscences of Caribbean Elders who are Grandparents of children at Lewisham schools. Children from years 5-7 in the schools watch the performance and then use the theme and techniques as inspiration to devise their own Lewisham Migration Story with one of our drama practitioners which is performed for parents and carers. The stories explored have included the personal histories of TA's in the school, refugee stories and stories from the children's families.

Powerful performance – an incredible project!
Pitched perfectly for the children
Such a memorable day
It is a way for the children to really have a sense of compassion and understanding about the world around them. It is also a wonderful journey for the chidren to explore their own background and what makes them belong.
