Case Study Package: Exploring Migrant Stories Through Art and Drama

Kirstin Armstrong, art teacher at Greenfaulds High School in North Lanarkshire, took part in our Authors Live Champions programme in 2016/17. Kirstin used Alpha: Abidjan to Gare du Nord, a graphic novel about a young man's desperate journey from Northern Africa to Europe, as inspiration for a cross-curricular project exploring the stories of refugees through art and drama.

Read Kirstin's blog about the project, watch our Authors Live broadcast with Alpha author Bessora and translator Sarah Ardizzone and take a look at learning resources with ideas for exploring issues around the migrant crisis, promoting wider understanding and challenging misconceptions with your pupils.
