Children Should be Seen and Heard

St Mary’s pupils launched the ME + US exhibition here in Leith Library last week:

They were one of the ME + US groups across the country who worked with the Children’s Parliament to investigate cultural identity, heritage and sectarianism from the perspective of children.

We interviewed project organisers and the children just before they launched their exhibition to find out more. Listen to the audio on Soundcloud here.

St Mary’s pupils work includes these brilliant portraits and personal statements:

You can pick up a copy of the ME + US newspaper from the library. It includes the 60 portraits and statements from children all over Scotland:

See the wonderful ME + US exhibition at Leith Library until the end of the month. Find out more on the Children’s Parliament Website or on Children’s Parliament Facebook.
