ESOL, Moving Shadows. Curated by John Whall and Kajal Nisha Patel
The Creative ESOL project is part of Derby City Councils ESOL for Integration Fund, supported by the Ministry for Housing Communities and Local Government, and aims to engage with communities where English is a second language through creative activities. The project is funded to help local authorities meet the English language needs of their communities, meeting learning and communication needs through creative learning and cultural exchange.
Lead by socially engaged artist Kajal Nisha Patel, participants have taken part in sessions offering creative ways to increase language skills in a fun and informal environment. Sessions have included aspects of storytelling, lens media and cookery, all while in the middle of a global pandemic.
