Threads of Identity

 

  

  

This project funded by the HEFCE National Networks for Collaborative Outreach (NNCO) explores on new forms of expression with a group of 15 boys at Burnage Academy in Manchester. The initiative in conjunction with the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Educational Trust worked with boys aged twelve and thirteen –  the same age as Ahmed Iqbal, a former pupil at Burnage who died in a racially motivated crime thirty years ago .

Parents, funders and pupils came together in a celebration event in Dec 2016. The finished cloth  will hang in the school and a short film by Mary Stark documenting the project will enable the work to be shared by a wide audience.
