Using P4C to think about Our Community. @Sapere_p4c @tmbc_culture @ArtsAward

I have just started a project to roll out an Arts Award called Our Community designed by Tameside Council TMBC and the Arts Council of England to enable children to think more deeply about their community, learn about local artists and use their own art skills to express their observations of and visions for their communities.

As a Philosophy for Children trainer it was natural for me to use P4C/ Philosophical enquiry to facilitate this work. First group started last night.

Once again the children proved that they are much more capable of philosophical enquiry that we often give them credit for.

Questions raised by 6 and 7 year olds last night…What about homeless people? are they looking for a community? Is it a ‘blank community’ because they don’t know who is it in it yet? Are we in a community with people we don’t know? Do we need people to make a community?

Give your kids a break from the screens!

Don’t forget to book your place! Only a couple left for each day.
