The Global Earthworks Project: ‘The Journey’

The Global Earthworks Project Showcase provided an exciting performance and exhibition platform for six different schools, led and organised by Falinge Park High School this week. Whilst the final sharing took place at The Manchester People’s History Museum on Sunday, 2nd of July 2017, this was a culmination of a year’s worth of workshops, events, residentials and community sessions led across different venues. The video here captures a flavour of some of the sessions that led up the final showcase this week. We hope you enjoy it! For more details about the whole project, contact Ms Wystawnoha.
