Creative workshops in Palestine
In July 2011 Ross Georgeson began a 3 month placement working with the Qattan Centre for Education Research and Development, based in Ramallah, on different projects.
He will be working with over a 100 teachers and children on courses ranging from how to use Art to encourage literacy, using Art to show Science ideas in early education and introducing a cross curricular approach to using Art in schools.
These workshops will take place in teacher resource centres, libraries and youth centres throughout the region.

"SPART" - putting the art into sport!
In August 2010 we provided arts activities for 300 children as part of the Seashell Trust's Children's Able and Disabled Sports (CADS) week. Activities ranged from making floating ducks and colourful figures from materials that are easily found around the house, to creating sports-themed jigsaw arts. See more photos...
Same Difference is an exciting International Service project devised by award-winning artist, Ross Georgeson.
The project aims to use art and creativity workshops to boost the confidence and self-esteem of children living with HIV/AIDS, conflict, disability and extreme poverty in each of International Service’s programme countries. The idea is to make a series of collaborative art exhibitions of children’s work, culminating in a touring exhibition and creative workshops in the UK bringing development awareness messages to the public.
If you are interested in hosting the Same Difference exhibition please contact Barry Perks
The exhibition is very flexible and can configured to fit almost any available space! More details...
