Stratford City is the largest mixed-use regeneration project in the UK to date. However, much of the community is unaware of this exciting regeneration project or views change with caution. This resource shows how young people have used Art to show diversity and change as something positive, to be embraced within Newham.
Using a variety of media, including futuristic films and designs for open spaces and sculptures in the form of intergalactic aliens as a metaphor for the rich ethnic mix of the borough, young people aim to the challenge negative stereotypes and inspire the community that change is positive.
The project culminated in the BonArt ceremony whereby the exhibits were judged by Westfield representatives and awards were made for the best sculpture, film and design.
The project enriched the students GCSE Art portfolio of course work and has improved their learning in other areas of the curriculum including functional English and Maths.
