One World Day

One World Day delivers short arts workshops in one day or half day sessions. Topics covered are varied and range from traditional crafts, music, dance, drama and visual arts. Your group could partake in ‘Rangoli’ – traditional Indian rice craft, calligraphy from various countries such as China or Japan, learn ‘Mehndi’ – hand painting with henna. 

The One World Day programme links diversity, community relations and equality through learning. The session serves to support and enhance the curriculum requirements under the citizenship and personal development modules, giving students and participants a well-rounded introduction to a given country. 

Journey Around the World

Journey Around the World is a more indepth introduction to a number of cultures. The programme is scheduled around key countries and learning targets. The group receives an introduction to a country each session and learns elements of the country’s culture in more detail. For example, we can structure sessions around a particular part of the globe, looking at South America or the Far East for instance.

Taking a group of countries such as India, China and Japan and exploring the culture, heritage, folklore, dance, music and legends of these countries, partcipants can have more meaningful engagement with learning
