X25 Students working with the Conversation Club

Over the past two weeks students in X25 have been working with the Conversation Club.  A charity based in Doncaster that offers support to refugees and asylum seekers.  We have taken part in workshops about Migration and on Monday we had the privilege of meeting and interviewing people who are currently seeking asylum in Doncaster. Their stories gave us a real insight into the realities of migration and made us realise that the community of Doncaster can do more to help.

Our task now in X25 is to come up with ways we can help and put them into practice! After all… above all else is compassion!

X25 The Big Reveal

This week X25 have been working hard on their immersion for their new expedition. It has been an action packed week, starting with learning about film making with our expert Geoff Hewitt, to painting the opening of Anchor text, grappling with a map of migration and completing gallery walks. The week ended with the unveiling of the expedition and all it’s components.

So now, without further ado, our title of the expedition is Should I stay or should I go? with the guiding question:

Why should we care about Migration? 

Over the next 14 weeks our students in X25 will be studying this expedition and working towards our final product which is to make a documentary about the topic of Migration.

This is going to be a fantastic opportunity for our students to engage with the community and I can’t wait to see what they will produce.

Watch this space!
