Public Domain Arts And Media – pilot scheme UNITE in Schools

My newly formed Community Interest Company Public Domain Arts & Media has been commissioned by UNITE N. West and UNITE In Schools to develop a pilot scheme exploring a new approach to educating children about trade unions.

The project uses role-playing techniques inspired by Augustus Boal and Paulo Friere to create an innovative educational initiative designed to give 14-24-year olds, a creative and participatory introduction to trade unionism and collective action in the work place.

This project is about allowing young people to experience ‘light-bulb’ moments of understanding about the possibility of resisting exploitation in the work place and through that an understanding of the wider collective struggle for freedom, equality and economic justice.

Above all this project is about inspiring the union members, activists, reps and shop stewards of the future!
