Worksheet by Kooj Chuhan for use during visits to museums and heritage agencies, in preparation for the website, blogging and social media workshops:
USING THE INTERNET TO COMMUNICATE OUR QUESTIONS, EXPERIENCES AND THOUGHTS
The Pan African Congress of 1945 took place in Manchester, and it was a critical time for African history.
What does it mean for the situation right now for all people of African descent in Manchester and the world?
What does it mean for the liberation of all people who have been colonised?
Are these questions and connections too difficult to understand?
Can we share what we are grappling with through the internet and generate greater interest?
PLEASE CHOOSE ONE THING THAT YOU FOUND PARTICULARLY INTERESTING OR GOT YOU THINKING.
Take photographs. Then write down your thoughts about this – in the style of how you might talk.
- What got you thinking, or caught your attention?
- What questions does it make you ask?
- Ask a friend what they think about your questions, what do they say?
- How does it have any relevance to your life today? Check with others what they think as well, and write it down.
Keep a hold on to all of this writing that you do along with any photos you take. We will use them when we do the website and social media design, editing and publishing sessions.
