Module: Introduction Module

Duration: 30 minutes

Social Development Theme: Arts


Facilitators can support participants to recognise that they will be bringing a lot of creativity and cultural awareness with them to the workshop. They can build on the Tree of Expectations exercise by looking at the roots of the tree as being the artistic skills, passions and experiences that participants are bringing with them. The soil around the tree could also symbolise the broader cultural influences in participants’ communities.

Learning outcomes

Understand Active Citizens.

Preparations and materials

Draw the Tree of Expectations on a large piece of paper (four sheets of flip chart connected with sticky tape in a square shape). Bring sufficient post-it notes for the group to have at least ten each. Write this quote in large on a flip chart sheet and place on wall.
