Camden Youth Group Workshops

Camden Chinese Youth GroupAs part of the Crossing Continents project, young people from Camden Chinese Community Centre in London were invited to participate in a series of drama workshops. Sessions were facillitated by Kumiko Mendl of the Yellow Earth Theatre Company and involved the group responding to archive materials through creative writing and drama. The young peoples dramatic visualisations and the poetry they wrote in response to the images they saw was recorded and developed into a short film to accompany an exhibition on China.

Educational resources accompanying this exhibition and exploring the history and geography of China are also now available on this site, the resources are entitle China - Snapshots in Time and can be accessed by following the link.
