The Story Makers

17 December 2012 – 14 January 2013

The Story MakersThis project managed by Fusion Arts paired Arts Psychotherapist Helen Edwards with young children with Speech, Language and Communication Needs from three Oxford schools (Rose Hill, Bayards Hill and Wood Farm).

Initially inspired by visits to the Museum the children began working with touch, colour, movement and sound. The project enables the children to build up their capacity for taking in, understanding and reflecting on information as well as their expressive capacities, and so to enrich their vocabulary of communications.

This case display on the Lower Gallery will show a selection of work created by the children as the culmination of the project.

The Story Makers is funded by BBC Children in Need.
