Introduction

On 10th July 2012 StoryWorks at the University of Glamorgan and the Muslim Council for Wales will launch a set of digital stories made by Muslim children from Cardiff, aged between six and thirteen. The stories are based on themes that arose in a recent Cardiff University research project, funded by Religion and Society, and they focus on children’s experiences of learning to be a Muslim.

Who might be interested in attending?

 Head teachers and teachers from both primary and secondary level education. In

particular the stories will be useful for teaching religious education and cultural diversity

 Staff working in a local education, social services or health setting

 People working with children and young people with an interest in the topic

Light refreshments will be available on arrival, followed by a brief address from Professor Jonathan Scourfield who led the research project at Cardiff University. The children’s stories will then be screened.

A short report on the research which inspired the digital stories can be found on-line at http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/socsi/research/researchprojects/religiousnurture/publications/research%20findings.pdf
