Ysgol Plas Mawr – Representation and Social Media
About the Project
Ysgol Plas Mawr has the role of Participation Officer as a core member of staff, someone who takes a pastoral role in supporting young people through extra-curricular activities such as cooking. Eva and the Education Team worked with the Participation Officer and two groups of young women, one group 13 – 15 years, and one 16 – 17 years who the school felt would benefit from the experience. The groups worked together around the theme of Representation and Social Media, to think about identity, self-image, and self-representation, specifically online.
The resulting work was a series of Cartes de Visite style boxes, and an exhibition within the girls social space.
