Ten primary schools team up with European artists to

Launch InviteNext month 10 North West-based emerging European artists will team up with local primary schools in a mass arts project exploring the region’s multicultural heritage and what it means to be ‘a European’.

Led by Manchester’s Z-arts, over 300 youngsters will take part in various creative activities from making puppets and plays to creating pots and poetry with visual artists Clare Pollen and Ivan Liotchev; theatre practitioners Sinead Emery and Yusra Warsama; musician Sarah Atter; flamenco dancer Yinka Graves; animator Cristina Pedreira; poet Yussuf M’Rabty; sculptor Pascal Nichols; and, puppeteer Molly Hawkins.

Together they will explore notions of multiculturalism and what it means to be ‘European’ whilst creating work which will be presented at Z-arts this summer.

In partnership with the European Commission in the UK and Instituto Cervantes and with support from The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University, Z-arts aims to encourage young people from across the North West to explore feelings and thoughts on Europe.

Yinka (2)Liz O’Neill says: “As a referendum on Britain’s role in the EU is still on the political agenda, we thought it would be timely to explore our children’s ideas about Europe. At Z-arts we are passionate about diversity. It is integral to the success of Manchester as a multicultural metropolis that represents the North West and we want to reinforce its place within Europe as a vibrant and creative city.

“We have identified 10 primary schools from across the North West, focusing particularly on diverse and multicultural communities. These schools will be linked with an individual artist who will create a bespoke project from a range of different disciplines inspired by their own European connections.”

IvanThe schools are: Summerville Primary School, Salford; Holy Name RC Primary School, Rolls Crescent Primary School, Crosslee Community Primary School, Armitage CofE Primary School and Gorse Hill Primary School, all in Manchester; Roundthorn Primary Academy and Friezland Primary School in Oldham; Pikes Lane Primary School in Bolton; and, Cheadle Heath Primary School in Stockport.

The project will culminate in a mass installation at Z-arts, incorporating the whole building. Each school will take ownership of its own space and turn it into one of the stops of a journey around Europe. Each of the 10 spaces will be an immersive exhibition or performance that is facilitated by the young people in partnership with the artist.

Liz O’Neill concludes: “This is the start of an amazing project which will unite language, creativity, culture and art in all its forms to inspire a generation of children across the North West and hopefully teach us all something about the world in which we live.”

Why “Europe”?

It’s a big topic – a conglomeration of 28 countries with over 500 million people speaking 24 (official) languages. In the UK, politically a hot potato: should the UK be ‘in’ or ‘out’; how much say does Brussels have over domestic policy; immigration; the Euro? The very word ‘Europe’ conjures images of vineyards and warmer climates as well as bureaucracy, farming subsidies and legislation.

So what does it actually have to do with our day to day lives? What does ‘being a European’ really mean? Especially when you’re at primary school.

Memory of the Camps

by BitchAboutBush_com

If you have not seen Frontline's "Memory of the Camps", I highly suggest it. You can watch it online, so bookmark it (below)
Sixty years ago, in the spring of 1945, Allied forces liberating Europe found evidence of atrocities which have tortured the world's conscience ever since. As the troops entered the German concentration camps, they made a systematic film record of what they saw. Work began in the summer of 1945 on the documentary, but the film was left unfinished. FRONTLINE found it stored in a vault of London's Imperial War Museum and, in 1985, broadcast it for the first time using the title the Imperial War Museum gave it, "Memory of the Camps
