ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE QUESTIONS WORKSHOP WITH HARUN MORRISON
Join us for this specially adapted workshop aimed at teachers and educators, led by current Storm Warning exhibition artist, Harun Morrison.
Harun Morrison has invited a range of people including activists, writers, artworkers, theorists, architects, chefs, natural historians and horticulturalists to propose questions relating to environmental justice that can stimulate conversation. A selection of these questions will form the basis of this discursive workshop. Participants will be invited to work in small groups of 3 – 4 people, followed by a freeform closing discussion over two hours, including a short break and light refreshments.
As part of our round up, we will invite the group to consider how this session and a tool like the Environmental Justice Questions might support developing open and critical thinking and discussion skills back in the classroom. The workshop is suitable for all teachers and educators working across arts and humanity subjects and varying age groups from Primary to Secondary and FE.
- Free to Teachers Collective members (email address required as proof)
- £15 for non-member Teachers and Educators
