The extraordinary people, places, events and ideas of the Age of Revolution are a great stimulus for artworks, creative writing, film, performance and digital makes.
We are working with schools and museums all over the country to create a set of tried-and-tested projects for you to try in your own classrooms. Why not try an animation for starters?
