The Culture Yard – Devon
The Culture Yard is an education programme for KS2 and KS3 students which raises aspirations, builds confidence and develops critical thinking through a culturally sustaining curriculum using cultural histories, traditions and repertoire from across the Black diaspora in Britain.
The Culture Yard will deliver an exciting student-led learning programme in a positive and exciting environment, which stimulates curiosity in Black cultural traditions, builds critical thinking, confidence and motivates aspiration and achievement for the future.
The Culture Yard’s philosophy is “it takes a village to raise a child”. This recognises the cultural importance of understanding Black histories and traditions in Britain, and building connection across the small multi-lingual and multi-ethnic communities in Devon and beyond.
The Culture Yard also helps students and families develop deeper thinking, knowledge and understanding of their diverse cultural traditions and heritages, and promotes wider community understanding and knowledge through positive collaborations.
