 The Ones We Left Behind

The Ones We Left Behind

This book encompasses stories from many communities about families separated by continents, relocating to new countries, even simply moving from one city to another. Through a unique programme of community workshops supported by the work of a dedicated team of professional researchers, we gather personal oral histories. These stories are then used as a basis for truthful, high quality dramas, which truly celebrate diversity. The project encourages openness and exploration, looking outwards with curiosity and respect, listening to and learning from real voices, and identifying that which is specific and unique. By looking deeply into Caribbean experiences we discover parallels in many other cultures, which illuminate their heritage and our own. The playtext included in the book is a great Lesson starter for performance art students 16+ Great resource to aid black history month teaching

Building Bridges educational  resource pack

Building Bridges educational resource pack

This Educational resource pack is filled with photographic archives and model comprehensive questions. The materials could be used in many ways and across a wide age range, which makes it suitable for different key stage and curriculum requirements. The images are very visual, which could be used to explore ideas for other projects and future work. Our work is firmly rooted in the tradition of oral storytelling, helping to bring to the forefront unheard stories of our past, and to build a bridge to a better future for our young people. In July 2008, Full Spectrum Productions held three oral history workshops in London for the ‘Building Bridges’ project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. This involved interviews and discussions with elders from the host community about their experiences in seeing large groups of Caribbean people arriving in Britain after the Second World War - 1948 to 1962 - known as "The Windrush".

The making of Meditations Beneath Duppycherry Tree

The making of Meditations Beneath Duppycherry Tree

As part of the Jamaica Hidden Histories project this video focuses on the Jamaican sculpture, George' Fowokan' Kelly. In April 2014 Fowokan shared his journey from musician to acclaimed self- taught sculptor and artist with 40 Year 9 students at Burlington Danes Academy in West London. The focus of the session was the all-important spiritual connection with his African roots, culture and heritage as revealed in his sculpture, Meditations Beneath Duppycherry Tree. Under the guidance of the Art Teacher the students took part in a series of Art and Design lessons inspired by Fowokan’s sculpture. With the support of the Jamaica Hidden Histories pack this video provides teachers with a unique and readily accessible toolkit to engage students in the historical and cultural links between Jamaica and Britain. It is also a blueprint for teaching about other cultures in context. Embedded in National Curriculum subjects such as History, English, Art & Design & Technology, with links to Geography Computing and PSHE, it is aimed primarily, but not exclusively, for Key Stage 3, Year 9 students.
