Students in Year 9 have been encouraged to be ‘Outspoken’ at Magic Me; a creative project for women aged between fourteen and eighty years old. This was a fantastic opportunity to build our confidence. Students met with the ladies from the project at the Bishopsgate Institute where the group looked at posters, pamphlets and books from the Institute library to find out where and when women were outpsoken and where and when they were not. In these sessions, they also looked at the type of words and phrases speakers sometimes use to make an impact and put together a special spoken word performance on issues they felt passionate about. They also produced a photo exhibition that explored the impact of words when speaking out.
