The workshop explores the unique habitats and heritage of South Africa, its plants, animals and people whilst investigating concepts of collaboration and resilience – in nature through plant/animal adaptations and through solidarity from people in the UK/Islington during apartheid. It includes a creative activity offering participants the opportunity to shape the design of a new community learning garden for the borough that celebrates black-led history. It might be possible to work for an extended session on this to create a 3D model if time permits (in 1 hour sessions it is 2D drawing). Suitable for KS2 & KS3.
*the session can be adapted to focus on any London borough or local authority’s anti-apartheid history
