Exeter Central Learning Community

The Central Learning Community in Exeter worked with Daisi to create their Celebrating Our World Festival in summer 2009.

The aim of the festival was to foster cultural understanding and community cohesion, using their Learning Community budget.  The children worked with their peers from neigbouring schools during the project, giving them a chance to meet and work together with new people from their community.  They learned about different cultures through taking part in exciting arts workshops, including dance, sculpture, music, drumming, batik and mask-making – all led by professional artists.  The students came together at Exeter Northcott in July to share their achievements during the festival.
