We worked with 615 students and 18 teachers in our Poplar Consortium to create an inspiring programme of workshops, artworks for school surroundings, and teacher CPD sessions. The programme included aspects of rich cultural learning for pupils and staff through a wide range of projects on legacy and values.

The projects culminated in a celebration event for all the schools, with artist-led workshops and an exhibition to showcase the children’s work.
