Supporting and enriching creativity among young people
20 May 2021
We’re proud to share the success of Map of Wonders, part of ArtHouse Jersey’s Genesis Education Programme, sponsored by Saltgate.
Over 3,000 children in 22 primary schools across Jersey have now learned about the island through the first-of-its-kind project. The programme has also had great engagement, helping children express their creativity and increase their sense of belonging.
We were delighted to share the episodes with our team, starring ‘the Story Beast’ – AKA local performer John Henry Falle – as he takes us on a quest to discover Jersey’s history and folklore.
Chief corporate officer Hannah Culshaw captured our support for this project in a recent Jersey Evening Post article:
‘The Map of Wonders project has helped young people reach their potential and created a fun educational platform at a time when we needed it the most,’ she said. ‘Creating a culture of learning is a focus for Saltgate and one of our aims is to support the communities where we operate.’
‘On a personal note, my children and I have loved watching the Story Beast’s videos. They really bring Jersey’s heritage to life and show how we’re all part of our Island’s story.’
