About the Event

As part of Islington Council's 11 by 11 PledgeCubitt Artists has invited Autograph's Learning and Participation Manager Ali Eisa to lead an online workshop for educators in Islington. At this event, you’ll explore ways of using photography and visual material to support pupils to think differently about race, representation, identity, citizenship and human rights.

Ali will introduce a selection of images from Autograph’s collection of photography, which comprises over 5,000 diverse photographs made by renowned fine artists, social documentary and high street studio photographers, including family albums and vernacular imagery. Together, you’ll consider the stories they tell about issues of race, identity, migration, citizenship and multiculturalism, belonging and community.

You’ll explore how these images can be used to facilitate visual analysis and critical thinking for pupils, raise awareness of British history, including Empire, and as a stimulus for hands-on creative activities.
