Back in the UK we display a thoughtfully curated exhibition of Art, Sculpture, Photography and Film in schools; sharing the complex and challenging nature of life in Kakuma by those who live and breathe it.
 

We are fully involved in our participant schools and offer them the option of running assemblies and workshops as well as encourage communication links between their students and the young people in Kakuma. Many schools create ‘response work’ which we take back and exhibit in Kakuma. We continue to return to a number of London schools on an annual basis with new collections of Art and Film work.

Head of Geography / SSSO

Some fantastic Geographical links in the workshop with some very pointed, thought provoking geographical questions. Well done to all involved!

Tim Sanders

Head of RE / SSSO

The Kakuma exhibition gave year 10 RS students a fantastic opportunity to reflect on the topic we have been studying – ‘Good and Evil’. The exhibition gave them the chance to see how much positivity and human spirit can be present in difficult times… Students loved the art work and the stories behind them. Thank you so much!

 

 

Host an exhibition in your school

How it works

First contact us at hello@mystartproject.co.uk to arrange a suitable week for us to come in.

Then we work with you to find the most convenient way/place to display the exhibition in the school premises.

On the agreed dates we set up the exhibition and take it down afterwards!

We also offer workshops and assemblies-just ask!

The exhibition is also accompanied by School Resources that maximises your student’s engagement with the exhibition. Simply download them from the website and we will be happy to go through them with your staff.

The benefits of hosting an exhibition in your school

Support your school in becoming Global Citizens.
Develop your student’s understanding on the issues of refugees, conflict, conflict resolution, migration & displacement.
Encourage empathy between your pupils and those in Kakuma who face challenging circumstances.
Promote cultural and racial tolerance and dispel myths about ‘refugees’.

We suggest the cost of the exhibition is split between participating subject departments or fund-raised. All money raised goes towards developing and sustaining our projects.
