Rivers of the World

Rivers of the World

This year Aspire Academy was asked to take part in the Rivers of The World Education Project. Rivers of The World is a collaborative art project which connects young people across the world with their local river, and to a partner school. Aspire’s partner school, Freetown School for Girls, is located in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Our contribution was created in July when the students broke from normal lessons and worked together in Community Week. The final piece, which was a group effort between KS3 and KS4 students, was then sent to London and printed to a large scale for public display. The work has been displayed alongside the work from Sierra Leone and has recently been viewed alongside the River Thames, The National Theatre in London, and more recently outside the National Museum in Freetown.
