West Park Primary School and Penn Hall School take part in Counter CulturePosted: November 26, 2013
The Arena Theatre’s theatre, education and heritage project, Counter Culture, will be working with two Wolverhampton schools – West Park Primary and Penn Hall. Pupils from these schools will be working together to find out about their communities by exploring how exchange over the counter has changed in the lifetime of local residents. The pupils will learn about oral history gathering; visit the City Archives to see where their work will be stored; interview local people about their experiences ‘over the counter’ and then dramatise their findings to create a performance at the Arena Theatre in March 2014. A book and an exhibition of photographs will follow.
