No Outsiders at Storyhouse

Saturday 30 March 2019

Explore the No Outsiders immersive book collection from 29 March – 12 April.

In partnership with Cheshire Academies Trust the selection of 35 books has been designed to develop a curriculum response to the Equality Act 2010, for primary school aged children. The books encourage pupils to explore identities and focus on diversity as a whole. They will be at Storyhouse (in the entrance lobby) from Friday 29 March – Friday 12 April.

David Wearing, Principal at Kelsall Primary said:

Children across many Cheshire schools have been responding to the No Outsiders books in a range of ways, celebrating and highlighting equality and diversity. Their work will be displayed alongside the No Outsidersbooks collection for members of the public to read and reflect upon.

No Outsiders is the teaching guide written by Andrew Moffat. He designed the book collection and research pack to teach children to recognise and celebrate difference.

The exhibit will feature over 35 books including Spacegirl Pukes by Katy Watson, Odd Dog Out by Rob Didddulph, The Journey by Francesca Sanna, My Name is not Refugee by Kate Milner and King & King by Linda de Haan & Stern Nijland.

Alex Clifton, artistic director at Storyhouse said:

“We’re proud to work with Kelsall and schools across the region on this brilliant project, led by inspirational teachers. Free speech, open minds and welcoming hearts defeat all kinds of cruelty and exclusion every day in this country, and the earlier we can get children celebrating our diversity, the richer our future together can be.”

The collection will be located in Storyhouse’s lobby with accompanying arts and crafts from Friday 29  March to Friday 12 April.  Please drop in to explore.
