Black History Month is a celebration of black history, heritage and culture that takes place each year throughout October. We aim to create awareness of and appreciation for African arts and culture and an understanding of how this has helped create the multi-cultural society that we have in Britain today. Just Add can plan and deliver a range of creative lessons, workshops and assemblies tailored to suit your needs for example, African dance, drumming, mask making, batik making, storytelling and folk tales. Pupils will learn about traditional African tales, myths and legends and Britain’s transatlantic slave trade: its effects and eventual abolition. Young people will also learn how to think critically, weigh evidence and develop perspective.
We can plan Black History Month workshops/lessons around your timetable, as PPA or part of a themed week.
Get in touch to discuss your Black History Month workshops.
Drumming is an excellent group activity to develop team work. It requires participants to listen, communicate and contribute. Our experienced creative practitioners can cater for all ages and abilities. Drumming is an accessible activity to all members of the community, including those who are often excluded due to physical or mental health difficulties.
These workshops are dedicated to West African drumming rhythms and percussion music from Senegal, Gambia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mali, Guinea and particularly rhythms associated with Djembe, Sabar and talking drums.
Participants can learn traditional Brazilian instruments and will have a chance to work with a variety of Latin instruments such as pandeiru, ganza, surdo, agogo, tamborim, cuica and berimbau. We can plan drumming workshops/lessons around your timetable, as PPA, part of a cross-curricular topic or an afterschool club.
Pupils will learn how to perform in ensemble contexts, playing musical instruments with accuracy, fluency, control and expression.
