Entry Requirements



Educators are invited to join artist Adam James to imagine different ways of being together in school using strategies from Nordic live action role-play (larp).

In this workshop participants will explore difference, acceptance, trust and empathy through role play and think about how larp could be a useful approach in schools.

Adam James will talk through his 2016 Moving Up commission and the development of the Here is the Place classroom resource made in collaboration with Year 6 pupils from Gateway Academy, North London. Through the project children created a game about living and working together, using movement, mapping and making. Here is the Place can be read as a rehearsal for a more democratic form of school and society.

The workshop is open to anybody who is working in schools or is interested in working with children and young people. Toolkits will be available for free.

Moving Up is a series of workshops in which artists, teachers and children come together to reflect on the transition from primary to secondary school. The projects create a temporary space where children can develop the tools to support one another and think about how schools could be better.
