TypeConference Presentation

This workshop aimed to think about how identity is performed by children and adults in different ways and at different times in school. How we are seen, perceived, (mis)understood, valued or become (in)visible at school matters to us all. Becky, Jo and Miles took a series of images with the children, as they showed them all the different ways they perform versions of themselves for different assumed viewers. Participants were invited to make their school photos, before reflecting on some of the images made with the children. The workshop will explored how children navigate the different ways they are expected to perform, and how children and adults can reflect together on the ways they see each other.
