Visual Journeys: Children's Creative Responses to The Arrival by Shaun Tan

I've just found out about the exhibition described below, which sounds really good. If you want to know more abot Shaun Tan's books, we have The Arrival and several other titles in our catalogue.

"This exhibition emerges from the Visual Journeys project (School of Education, University of Glasgow), led by Dr Evelyn Arizpe, with Dr Maureen Farrell and Ms Julie McAdam. The project explores how immigrant children construct meaning from the images in Shaun Tan’s award-winning wordless graphic novel. The display includes a range of creative strategies drawing on children’s own experiences of migration and journeys and on their literacy practices, allowing them to engage with and reflect more fully on their own and others’ experiences of migration and contributing their own words to the collective story. Exhibition runs 6 June to 29 July at Hillhead Library, Byres Road."
