 Project objective

The Children’s Photography Archive (CPA beta) is the first archive in the world of its kind, featuring the photographs of child photographers. Our proposal is to test the scaling up of the CPA for the creation of evidence-based and openly accessible methodologies and learning resources for a child-authored, multimodal citizenship curriculum in primary schools. The social innovation grows out of our ERC-funded research (the 'CONNECTORS STUDY') on the relationship between childhood and public life with six- to eight-year olds that demonstrated how children connect to and produce rich multimodal stories (using text, image, sound) about their experiences of public life. Our proposal is to create and make sustainable the first-ever Children’s Photography Archive 2.0 (CPA 2.0) for citizenship education that provides educators and pupils methodologies and tools for a child-authored, multimodal citizenship education. The project seeks to (1) address the challenges faced by teachers in delivering citizenship education; (2) develop adult/educator capabilities for understanding children's visual communication in relation to citizenship; (3) provide an infrastructure to support and recognise children's visual communication. The CPA 2.0 will innovate on citizenship education by offering multimodal content and methodology created by and designed with children and teachers, and will test the scaling up of the CPA for child-authored, multimodal citizenship education in real-world settings, at the same time as providing a platform for children photographers to display their work and increase public understanding of children’s photographic forms of expression. There is an urgency to this project as we enter a critical time for Europe’s future. As such, geographically located at the edges of Europe (Greece, United Kingdom), this project will yield complex and emerging multimodal stories of what it means to grown up ‘European’ which will serve educational and cultural purposes.
