LOCAL TO GLOBAL STUDENT PROJECT
Reflective Transformative Totally Inclusive
A student-led project running throughout the academic year celebrating diversity in the local community
The Local to Global Student Project provides the opportunity for students to research and explore the hidden stories and experiences of their local community, culminating in a community celebration event.
WHAT ARE THE AIMS OF THE PROJECT?
The Local to Global Student Project seeks to answer an important question: ‘why am I where I am today?’. Through the research of stories and experiences within local communities, participants are encouraged to uncover histories hidden from mainstream narratives that showcase diversity in our communities.
WHAT WILL THE PROJECT INVOLVE?
Participants will be guided through 3 workshops by Dr Power.
Participants will produce an original piece of research that will be presented at a Community Celebration Event. How they chose to present their research findings should reflect their research journey; previous examples have included songs, plays, a poetry anthology, a pop-up museum, films, and journal articles.
