‘The world in one place: learning together in a multicultural city’ is a National Lottery Heritage Fund-supported project, exploring the heritage and history of primary school life and education in Birmingham during the 1960s to 1980s. This was a time of profound change, demographically, socially, culturally, technologically. It prompted a period of innovation as those working in education tried to make sense of and respond to these shifts.

Join us to hear unique insights and to join the conversation.
