Anti Racism Creative Showcase

On Monday 10th June, we were at St Mungos Museum for our Anti Racism Creative Showcase Event in partnership with the EIS.

As part of the creative school’s project, schools across Scotland were invited to produce anti-racism themed artworks in a range of genres, to be celebrated and displayed in an online gallery.

The project received over 550 submissions from a diverse pull of schools throughout Scotland, ranging from primary 1 – S6 pupils. A small collection of pupils work formed part of the in-person anti-racism creative school’s showcase.

The event brought together around twenty young people whose pieces of work had been selected to be displayed in a showcase type environment and displayed around the room.

As well as displaying the young people’s work, the event aimed to be a celebration and a learning experience for the young people.

The young people took part in several fun filled activities during the day, which started with the “Solidarity Wall”. This is where all the pupils were tasked to use a template to write a message of solidarity on why the world should #showracismthered card and celebrate diversity.

After lunch break, the young people were treated to a performance by TMRW Dance Crew, a diverse dance crew based in Edinburgh, before they then joined in on the action.

TMRW Dance Crew highlighted to the pupils & attendees the positives of dance culture. They spoke about dance as being a fun and inclusive environment. The crew explained how they were a fantastic example of diversity with their crew members being from many different countries around the world, who all brought different styles and experiences to the group which ultimately creates a fun learning space within the crew.

We rounded off the day with a vote of thanks to all who took part and those who worked very had behind the scenes to help create such a magnificent day.

The young people were then invited up to collect their certificate to show off the positive work they had put in and each received a book token to continue their educational journey.
