Citizen researchers needed!

We are looking for volunteers interested in becoming citizen researchers and exploring Norfolk’s rich history as a place of sanctuary.

This is a great opportunity for people who have an interest in history and would like to contribute to making Norfolk a more welcoming place for refugees and asylum seekers.

Norwich Schools of Sanctuary, Anglia Ruskin University, The Common Lot and Amnesty International are collaborating to organise a day of action in schools across Norfolk on Friday 20th April 2018. Norfolk Welcomes will kick off the Amnesty International Football Welcomes weekend.

Norfolk Welcomes will see schools across the county deliver assemblies and lessons to raise awareness of the experiences of displaced people such and to connect pupils with Norfolk’s rich history as a place of sanctuary and refuge.

For the day of action, a team of citizen researchers led by Jeanette Baxter of Anglia Ruskin University will work alongside teachers to conduct new research, and to develop educational resources for primary and secondary schools.

If you’re interested in being a citizen researcher, please take a look here at what is involved and get in touch info@norwichschoolsofsanctuary.org
