Jamaica Hidden Histories has already proved to be an invaluable resource. It provides a range of information and stimuli that leads to much interesting work and debate
City of Birmingham School
As a school we are really grateful for the Jamaica Hidden Histories education resource and we have embedded it into our year 9 curriculum in a ceramics project.
We are lucky in that a member of our team helped to devise the Art & Design section and has specialist skills in delivering it. Our students have benefited the most in applying context to their work and enjoy using clay.
