Connecting United States, The Netherlands and South Africa (2016-2017) Part II

What’s going on?

160 students between 12-16 years old explored the shared heritage between the Netherlands and its former colonies, in this case United States and South Africa within the framework of migration. To prepare them for the online workshops, students visited museums, with exhibitions relevant to the topic and attended a master class about the history their country shares with the partnering country.

Workshop Time

Using social media; Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Skype, the students worked in small groups, participated in debates and created an art project that translated their thoughts and ideas of the meaning of migration today.
