Over 300 young people from 9 Lambeth schools worked with Lambeth City Learning Centre exploring the Olympic and Paralympic values through the medium of digital photography. Each school worked with CLC Artist in Residence, Ellie Kurttz, who supported students to create photographs about the values of friendship, respect, excellence, determination, courage, equality and inspiration.
The photographs taken by young people reflect the diverse range of activities that they participate in, in which they recognise and appreciate the Olympic and Paralympic values. These activities ranged from learning outside in early year’s settings, PE and sport, literacy and reading, UNICEF Day for Change and a school gardening project.
The following schools participated in this project: Ethelred Nursery School; St Bede’s RC Infant School; Heathbrook Primary; Henry Cavendish Primary School; Julian’s Primary School; Rosendale Primary School; Sunnyhill Primary School; Telferscot Primary School and St Martin-in-the-Fields High School for Girls
These photographs were also on display as part of the Avenue of Portraits as part of the Festival of Britain 60th Celebration at the Southbank Centre.
