Russian Revolution: Hope, Tragedy, Myths – workshops for secondary schools and colleges

Explore personal accounts of the Revolution in this activity-driven workshop, designed to stimulate critical thinking and develop interpretation skills in support of GCSE and A Level study. Led by one of our creative educators and taking place in the gallery, this session will engage students with the exhibition through discussion and active learning, exploring individual stories and historical and contemporary responses to this momentous event. 

Sessions will support students of History and have relevance to Politics, Citizenship and Sociology.
