LCS Inspires Science

A programme of aspiration-raising science workshops for primary school children in the diocese.  Supported by Zeiss and the Tim Henman Foundation, these events are designed to inspire children through life-enhancing, engaging and memorable experiences.

The first workshop on 11 March 2016 featured:

  • Mad Marc from Sublime Science, who you may have seen winning investment on BBC2’s Dragons’ Den
  • Scientific investigations in the science laboratories led by our own mad scientists
  • Forest Science in our outdoor classroom

The next workshop will be on Sport Science in the summer term. If your primary school would be interested in taking part, contact Hannah Price on 01543 306178.

Live & Learn Together Intergenerational Arts Project

Live & Learn Together is an arts project that brings together our 16-18 year olds and residents of St. John’s Hospital a historic almshouse in Lichfield, to work collaboratively in a series of three arts workshops supported by Staffordshire County Council’s Community Arts Fund.

This inspiring and always fascinating series of events:

  • created positive dialogue between generations
  • provided new experiences to be shared together
  • widened engagement and participation in the arts
  • employed local artists

Live & Learn Together offers a unique opportunity for participants to develop new skills, boosting their self-confidence and feelings of mental wellbeing, as well as being great fun and accessible to all. It is also hoped that these shared experiences will increase awareness and understanding of the issues facing both groups, fostering better relationships and mutual respect.

Three local practitioners worked with the group:

Filmmaker and photographer Dawn Jutton from MediaDivas Arts facilitated the first workshop to produce a short animation based on their shared experiences of living/learning in Lichfield. This fascinating session included interviewing, model making, photography and stop-motion animation.

Renowned local storyteller Peter Chand delighted the audience with traditional tales from the Indian sub-continent and Northern Africa on the theme of ‘home’. Everyone got the chance to write their own home-inspired tales with a twist – they could only use six words.

David Woolley and friends from the Joliba Drum School provided two African Drumming Workshops in March. This was a fun, final session of rhythm and music-making to end our time together.
