Sacred Spaces

THE SACRED SPACES PROJECT

Sacred Spaces is a creative arts project that engages pupils to explore and learn about local faith spaces. Common features of local faiths are explored during visits, whilst pupils work with artists to develop their individual creative skills.

Bringing together the context of faith spaces through a creative approach, enables pupils to participate in alternative learning. Our project will challenge the perceptions pupils may have of other faith groups to their own, and will enable them to have a better understanding.

PROJECT SCOPE

Sacred Spaces is available within the following art forms:
Storytelling, Making, Photography, Stain Glass, Mosaic, Animation, Dance, Music.
