Thinking Differently : Race & Identity In The Classroom

Monday 27 September 2021

Workshop content and learning resources are cross-curricular but may be particularly useful for subject teaching in art and design, photography, history, geography, PSHE and Citizenship, media as well as enrichment activities i.e. Black History Month.


In this hands-on session teachers will be introduced to Autograph’s photographic learning resources, providing diverse high-quality visual material in support of teachers to help pupils think differently about sensitive issues including race, identity and citizenship.

Teachers will receive a short demonstration of Autograph’s resources and some key examples of how they have been used in practice in the classroom. Teachers will then actively respond to hands-on activities using photographic resources to develop new ideas and skills covering:

  • Engaging with sensitive subject areas through visual material made by artists to address issues of race, identity, migration, citizenship and multiculturalism, belonging and community.
  • Activities using photographs to develop visual analysis and critical thinking skills
  • Creativity as a way to represent personal identity, produce social action campaigns and promote civic participation.
  • Decolonising the curriculum through raising awareness of the experiences of Black and marginalised communities in shaping Britain’s multicultural society and its diverse identities and cultural heritages.
