YAG Workshop with Jean Campbell, Thursday 04 April 2013
Today the Youth Advisors did a workshop with Jean Campbell, learning about cultural continuity and the Transatlantic Slave Trade. The day started with a group game to share our name origin with each other. we learnt that enslaved people would often have their names changed and these cultural indicators, carefully chosen by our families, were lost
Each group were given a task to lead on, the next one was to look at some objects from the Museum’s handling collection. The Group had to think about what the objects were, what they were made from, what stories
We added new information to the timeline, filling in the gaps in knowledge.
Finally, we could join up the patterns created throughout the day, creating a big piece of shared work.
We also looked at where different textiles came from and the meaning they have, using images ans a world map.
