Event description

Description

Aimed at educators of all subjects, particularly secondary school settings.

What do you value more – obedience or defiance? In our current global political context how do we prepare pupils to think for themselves and defy injustice?

This participatory session will offer practical ideas for use in class, to encourage critical thinking and even defiance. Explore how artist Paula Rego uses art as a tool to defy the status quo, raising feminist and political issues such as fascism,the invasion of Iraq, legalising abortion and female genital mutilation.

We would welcome proposals from teachers willing to lead an activity at this event to share how you are currently developing critical thinking in class.

Delivered in partnership with Arts & Creative Learning, City of Edinburgh Council
