2008: Diary Drama Workshop

Each year 150 children take part in Holocaust Memorial Day, funded by Lewisham council. Joyce Treasure was employed as video artists, to film a 1.5-day workshop over a period of seven weeks to commemorate the Holocaust. Year 6 children looked at diaries written by a Jamaican child who immigrated to England during the 1940s. The young people adopted the role of ‘investigators’ and used a range of drama methods to unravel her story.
