Year 9 students worked with artist Rebecca Burns to explore human rights through Trading Stations.
This exhibition traces the history of how tea, coffee and hot chocolate arrived in the UK, revealing their global histories, connections to slavery and colonisation and contemporary ethical issues. Students used the exhibition to start conversations which led them to look at the local area around their school (Cheetham Hill). Documenting the area with cameras and looking at archives they discussed its community history and how they perceive it today. Their work was collected together and developed as a microsite.
