SWEATSHOP at Athelstane – Athelstane Primary School

SWEATSHOP literacy movement undertook a guest residency, with artists Michael Mohammed Ahmad and Mariam Chehab working for 9 weeks with students to develop a short piece of creative writing for inclusion in a publication.

SWEATSHOP’S process works with all-of-class engagement. Students develop a short piece of creative writing in response to a question or provocation and share with their peers so they can get feedback and support to develop their writing.
