18 August @ 11.00 am - 11.45 am
Explore empathy, emotion and social action through storytelling at our Storytelling: Empathy Sundays. Each workshop will include a storytelling session designed to develop a wide emotional vocabulary and a craft activity to demonstrate how to show empathy in a practical way. Reading books with children is an important and fun way to develop empathy skills and by identifying with characters in stories, children can learn to identify emotions and see things from another point of view. Our Storytelling series focuses on three themes: Homelessness, Environment and Loneliness. Through these themes we aim to give an insight into different people’s feelings and the issues they may face.
We will read stories about loneliness. Participants will then help decorate some biscuits. They will be able to take some biscuits home and the rest will be donated to a local care home or Dementia café.
For ages 3 – 8 years.
This is a free event, booking in advance is recommended.
The Learning Programme has received generous support from Lord and Lady Levene of Portsoken.
Griselda Pollock: Where does Charlotte Salomon’s unique modernist artwork fit into today’s histories?
Charlotte Salomon produced arguably some of the most monumental and philosophical Modernist art works of the twentieth century in an intensive period of creativity between 1940-42 and yet very few people are aware of her. Griselda Pollock asks why this female Jewish artist, working in exile during the Nazi occupation of Europe, has been maligned and forgotten from Jewish history, Feminist history and Art history.
