Increasing Cultural Capital through Creative Partnerships

Join us for an introduction to Common Ground, a free, HLF funded, creative partnership opportunity, run by feminist theatre company Scary Little Girls, that can help you increase the cultural capital in your school.
On August 26th 1981, 36 people started their 110mile walk from Cardiff to RAF Greenham Common in protest against the Americans holding Cruise missiles on common land. Over the next 19 years Greenham Common became home to thousands of women who believed they could create change and leave the world a better place. Common Ground is an opportunity for your school to find out more about the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp and to take inspiration from the thousands of women who stood up for what they believed to consider what causes are important to your learners today.
We’ll be exploring how to introduce and explore key topics from the project within your classroom in fun and creative ways.
All schools who take part in the session are invited to take part in Common Ground which includes free resources, online and onsite learning opportunities.
You’ll discover:
– A wealth of free resources to support your classroom learning
– How this historical event can support learning in your classroom around the environment, war and conflict and equality
– How resources can be used to create cross curricular learning opportunities
– The power of our voices to change the world
– What causes are important to your learners today.
