As an example of how we tailor projects a particular school or community, Hedworth School in a South Tyneside asked us to explore the cultural traditions of Southern Asia. Children and staff worked with us to devise a celebration for the surrounding community, expressed through performance, dance, music and food.
The Dodgy Clutch South Asian Festival at the school was a breathtaking experience. An insight into the sights, tastes and sounds of another culture, it brought energy, vitality and innovation into the curriculum. It developed the children's and staff's knowledge and skills and cohesion between school and surrounding community." Joanna Scott, Art Co-ordinator, Hedworth Lane Primary School, South Tyneside.
