London pilot of Journey to Justice workshops
Thanks to funding from Awards For All (The Big Lottery) and Land Securities, we are running a pilot of our workshops focused on: the history of human rights movements; the arts of social protest; what is social change and how you can you be part of it, developing communication and team skills. A group of 13 young people from George Mitchell School, Leyton will be taken through a seven week course led by Martin Spafford who has many years’ experience of teaching history, with colleagues and volunteers. Sessions are interactive, with visiting speakers, challenging them to think about social change and their role in making it. There will be a local celebration event and on February 25th our patron Lord Herman Ouseley and Lord Jeremy Beecham will host us at the House of Lords where the group will share their learning with guests.
