A tale of two cities is a collaborative project bringing together Life skills student groups from Adult Education Wolverhampton and Art shape in Gloucester.
The aim is to bring together students facing disabling barriers from two very different cities. Students will have the opportunity to individually research and learn about each other and their cities. During the project the 2 groups of students will share their activities electronically and via social media. The project will culminate with celebrations later this year.
During the spring term students have been looking at equality and diversity and have been researching 'Pride' the LGBTQ communities' positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ). They have also looked into their own concept of the word pride and have been investigating their local industrial heritage.
Students at Adult Education Wolverhampton are fully engaged in making art and craft items for the spring craft fair that they will be hosting at the Life Skills open day in April. They have also been planning have-a-go activities and games for visitors to the event. Students have discussed what needs to be done and made decisions about who will do what and when, from attending to the craft stall to helping and engaging visitors with games and activities.
Craft items for sale will include:
