Am I a Londoner? (KS3)
Dance workshop, creative writing workshop and gallery activities
Museum of London
The aim of this day is for students to inquire into who Londoners are, as well as examining their own sense of identity and belonging. The day includes an Indian dance workshop, where they will consider what connects the diverse communities of London and create a cross-cultural performance piece set to a soundtrack using the Museum's oral archives. They will also take part in a creative writing workshop looking at their own identity and how they see it connecting to where they live. The gallery activities will lead students through the galleries of Modern London focusing on the theme of where Londoners have come from, their diversity of lifestyle, attitudes and beliefs.
