Nil by Mouth workshops and assemblies focus on raising awareness of the issues surrounding sectarianism within our society. Our interactive approach aims to draw out personal attitudes, views and experiences while encouraging people to challenge sectarianism in their own lives and in wider society.
Our workshops and presentations are delivered FREE OF CHARGE to schools and youth groups in Scotland. We also consider requests from other organisations to work with them either on a one-off basis or on anti-sectarian projects. Teachers are encouraged to use our workshops and materials as a support resource for wider projects exploring the issue of sectarianism. Education on sectarianism can be approached through a variety of subjects such as Drama, Art, English, History, Religious and Social Studies.
Our workshop sessions typically last around 90 minutes and utilise active learning techniques to link closely with Curriculum for Excellence.
We can also offer assemblies and presentations designed to fit within timetabled class periods.
We cater for upper primary and secondary audiences and offer a flexible approach to our delivery based on the requirements of each school.
We found the work with ‘Nil by Mouth’ very worthwhile. We felt that it helped raise awareness of the issues surrounding sectarianism within our society as well as addressing personal attitudes, views and experiences.The teachers involved used the workshop and materials as a support resource for a wider project exploring the issue of sectarianism as well as using the novel ‘Divided City’. Pupils now have a better understanding of sectarianism and difference. Working in partnership with our local denominational school has strengthened that relationship and team-building skills were developed between both schools and pupils.
