A future for racial justice – join The World Reimagined Learning Programme


We are inviting schools, colleges and community groups that work with young people to join 200+ UK schools and colleges to take part in The World Reimagined as part of your commitment to racial justice.


Created with artists, teachers and educationalists, our Learning Programme is an experiential and transformative journey for students, teachers and schools, formed of three parts:


  • Learning Outcomes
  • The Resources
  • Teacher Leadership Development

Learning Outcomes

The World Reimagined Learning Programme builds both the knowledge and skills that underpin racial justice, which empower us to overcome our divisions; reject hatred for compassion; move from despair to hope and take actions that make racial justice a reality in our society.

Each part of the programme will focus on developing one or more of the 5 Cs:

    • Compassion I am able to put myself in someone else’s shoes
    • Curiosity I seek additional knowledge through asking thoughtful questions
    • Courage I step bravely into issues that are difficult to understand and hard to discuss
    • Connection I can draw the threads between the history I learn and today’s reality
    • Critical Thinking I use logic to connect the dots. I’m unafraid of reason and challenge

The Resources

Our resources can be used for Primary Schools; Secondary Schools and Colleges:

    • Primary Schools – Our resources focus on the theme of Mother Africa to build a new understanding of where this story begins and enable students to understand, honour and celebrate a vivid history of Africa.
    • Secondary Schools & Colleges – Our resources will include a module for each of the nine themes of the Journey of Discovery, with extension activities that enable you to create the learning experience that is right for your students.

 

All of our resources are created through unique collaborations between artists and subject matter experts, in partnership with educationalists and teachers. They are both ready to use and ready to adapt to your particular context, and can be used flexibly across the curriculum.

Leadership In Teaching

Teachers play a vital role in helping young people engage with racial justice – in the spaces they create for students and the behaviours and approaches they role model.

Accessible online, our Leadership in Teaching Resources give you:

    • Tips and guides on how to use these resources so that you have the confidence to bring them to life as powerfully as possible for your students; and
    • Insights from leading thinkers and practitioners with reflective practice that will support your development as a racial justice leader and role model in your school community.

What People Say

We have really enjoyed working on the Globe and the whole project. It is rare that I have come across a project that is so impactive and potentially far reaching. Thank you so much to you and the team for realising the power of creativity to move people and create change where it is really needed.
