Moving Stories – exhibition competition with OCR

We are delivering a competition with the OCR exam board on their new history GCSE, which contains units about Britain’s migration history. Teams of students were invited to submit plans for how parts of their new units could look in a national migration museum.

We received some excellent entries – well done to all participating teams. We shortlisted four teams who will join us at the Migration Museum at The Workshop on the evening of 24 April to present to a high-profile panel of judges. The winners will be announced that evening.

The winning team will have the opportunity to visit New York City as the prize. NYC is home to the inspiring museum on Ellis Island, and our friends at the Tenement Museum, so pupils will have the chance to see migration heritage USA style. There will also be an opportunity for sight-seeing, of course!

The teachers briefing pack is available here (please note that the file size is 43MB).
