Holocaust Education through the Arts

A group of students in a Pupil Referral Unit is learning about the Holocaust & Citizenship and creating original artistic responses.

Polygon Arts is delivering a scheme of work over a period of 7 weeks (half a term), offering a variety of arts-based lessons (using drama, photography, poetry, visual arts) examining different aspects of the Holocaust, encouraging participants to draw out themes that have resonance with their own lives.

Toynbee Hall Aspire Project (2008)

Aspire works with Year 9 and 10 students from schools in East London, encouraging them to actively engage with their learning and life opportunities. The Aspire students are referred to participate in the project because they fall into the category of ‘excluded within school rather than from school’. These young people may not be accessing the curriculum for a range of reasons.

Inter-faith Arts Week (2008)

The project brought together young students from different faith schools and communities. It provided an opportunity for young people educated and typically sheltered in their own communities to meet and learn with/from people from other communities, whilst working towards a Bronze Arts Award qualification.
