Educators joined artist Jade de Montserrat for online workshops exploring self-image and identity.

For Cracks in the Curriculum 5 secondary school educators took part in two online workshops developed by multi-disciplinary artist Jade de Montserrat. The workshops explored key questions around self-image and identity in relation to young people aged 11 to 16.

Through the workshop the group considered themes from folklore, mythology and Afro-Futurism, and explored cultural teachings, education and discovery emerging through fantasy across the ages. Educators examined ideas about identity with particular reference to online spaces, thinking through the biases that are encoded into platforms and the ways we might use digital tools to challenge these.

Following the workshops, Serpentine Education will develop an educational resource in collaboration with Jade de Montserrat to be distributed to schools across the UK. This informative physical and digital guide will bring together content developed from the workshops, and aims to help educators create a space for conversations around self-image and identity among young people.
