the very first episode of DAD RADIO showcases the Nautical Threads project film soundtrack and creative conversation on Dover from Petra & Freyja Matthews Crow
Nautical threads examines Dover’s long nautical history through a range of connecting cultural and educational activities involving visual artists, writers, poets. The project took place in 2014 and has provided the participating Dover District schools with an inspiring cross-curricular focus for curriculum topics and themes.
- Artists and organisations will be better able to work with schools and understand their needs
- Teachers will learn new skills from arts specialists and be able to use them to inspire learning in their schools
- Children and young people will learn how to work collaboratively with people of different ages and backgrounds. They will build a “toolkit” of skills that will help them to communicate ideas and motivate others.
