As a part of the project, participants were encouraged to discover and research their local architectural and cultural heritage related to water, through accessing the materials available as well as in the school library or the Internet to initiate a debate on the need for heritage conservation. Such discussions encouraged the young generation in wanting to know more about their own roots, helping them understand their relation to their immediate neighbourhoods, regions, countries, etc.
Selected schools, as listed below, were invited to participate in workshops, presentations and activities to encourage young people to think more deeply about water and create some artworks based on the ideas they generate.
– Derby Moor (Derby) – Sycamore Academy (Nottingham)
– City of Derby (Derby) – Seeley Primary (Nottingham)
– Village Primary (Derby)
– NCS (Derby)
The Artworks completed by pupils were displayed at the big event at Deda on the 27th of September 2014.
Certificates were handed to the schools by the Deputy Mayor of Derby Cllr. Paul Pegg on the evening of the event for their participation.
