Since 2021, Making Sense has been shaped and informed directly by teachers and young people in Southwark secondary schools, addressing structural and racial inequalities through in-school creative projects and a collaborative digital sketchbook. We welcome submissions of content to be added to the Making Sense website. We want to continue to learn from each other, to develop a wide range of relevant and new content from many different voices and to grow our community of collaborators.
Making Sense aims to highlight urgent questions of systemic racism and asks how we listen to and learn from the experiences of young Black people in UK education. Submissions should address these themes directly or indirectly.
