EDUCATION + ENGAGEMENT + EXHIBITION

 

RIVERS OF THE WORLD

--------------

 

THAMES FESTIVAL TRUST + BRITISH COUNCIL

Rivers of the World is Thames Festival Trust’s flagship education project, delivered in partnership with the British Council Connnecting Classrooms programme. Schools around the world learn about the value of their local river through research, engagement and collaboration. Each year school students are linked with schools overseas (school partnerships). They study their river, or their partner city's river, and, with the help of professional artists, they produce artworks that are exhibited in London and other locations.

 

During our six year involvement in the project Cabinet of Curiosity worked with pupils aged 12-14 years at secondary schools across London. Pupils and teachers were introduced to new art and design techniques whilst exploring and reflecting on local and global issues and perspectives, building the skills they need for life and work in a global society.  Together we produced large-scale artwork for  exhibition along the River Thames and around the world in partner countries.  The artwork and workshop documentation was made available as an accompanying online resource and a printed catalogue.
