These activities provide examples for how London Against Racism‘s oral history resources can be used in education.

Activity 1: Theatre Workshop 

Take on the role of a ‘memory activist’ and perform oral histories in a group.

Activity 2: Transcript to Script

Use the interviews to explore creative writing and see how different people can have common experiences.

Activity 3: Memory Mapping

Memories are always tied to locations that hold different meanings for people. Listen to audio recordings and trace the story through maps.

Activity 4: Murals

People use murals to remember the history that matters to their neighbourhoods. See how murals have been used for memory, and design your own.
