YOUR SCHOOLS INVOLVMENT
Show and Tell is designed to seamlessly fit into your school’s curriculum, we even offer live Cisco Webex feedback sessions to bring ideas to life in the classroom. A completely flexible and accessible programme inviting all students and teachers to join in.
Whether you run the workshops as a GCSE or A-Level creative subject session, an after-school club, a lunchtime activity or a separate PSHE project to highlight World Mental Health Day, we want you to be involved.
Photography Workshop Films
Our four photography workshop films are freely available to all schools and youth clubs. With the guidance of professional photographers and therapeutic photography experts, our four workshop films teach the positive link between photography and mental health. Each workshop is accompanied with a task that will encourage the practice of photography as a mindful technique.
To assist your students with the workshop series, we’ve created an easy to follow how-to guide, download here.
Live Feedback Session
With thanks to our partner Cisco, we are hosting live feedback sessions exclusively for schools and youth clubs. Led by The Photography Movement founder Steve Wallington and photography wellbeing expert Daniel Regan, the sessions provide a chance for students to get expert tips and guidance directly from Show and Tell photographers.
“I wanted to thank you for the session today. It was pitched perfectly and the pace and timing were spot on. I was watching the levels of engagement with my little people and they were all responding”. Robin Warren, head teacher at Primrose Hill Primary School
SHOW AND TELL
We encourage all participating schools to invite their students to watch the workshop films, practice their new skills and submit an image to be part of our Show and Tell Exhibition, titled; How Are You Feeling? Photo submissions are open now until the 10th January 2021. Further information can be found on our Exhibition page.
Full school information pack is available here.
“Our students greatly benefited from hearing directly from the testimonies of photographers working within the complex subject of mental health and this really set them free to embark on discovering their own voices and enabled them to realise the value of visualising their own feelings and gave them a platform to voice their own opinions. We were overwhelmed with their submissions that they all created in their own time.”
Marina Nimmo, London School of Excellence Tottenham
“I firmly believe that as a pastoral lead it is my duty to ensure that every child feels happy and safe in school. The Show and Tell Project has given me an excellent platform to encourage pupils to express themselves through imagery. I started it with my classes and small groups before promoting Show and Tell on a whole school basis”
Lisa Ward, teacher at Maesteg School
“Selecting meaningful images, choosing their word and mind mapping – have been rewarding activities for them which have enabled them to work in the classroom as well as at home. Photography is wonderful at this age; and in doing something which is different, relaxing, gentle and individual compared to other areas of school – win win for me!”
Robin Warren, head teacher at Primrose Hill Primary School
