All That Jazz 24 June-18 July 2013
Britain since 1930, Exploring a variety of sources, History, Music
We have teamed up with the National Jazz Archive to give pupils aged 7 to 11 the chance to explore the written and printed history of jazz through posters, photographs and ephemera.
In this hands-on workshop they will have opportunities to compare and contrast the visual art and language of posters and examine photographs for evidence.
These sessions will be particularly applicable to pupils studying Britain since 1930.

|London is the Place for Me is a great workshop to get your students thinking about different influences on London's culture and British popular music. Developing the students’ enquiry skills this workshop explores how the bands and artists considered to be inherently British are often inspired by music from other countries. Did you know one of Britain’s most famous and successful bands was influenced heavily by music of Indian origin? Your students will be inspired by this workshop to investigate Britain’s rich musical history with a new perspective.|
