CARGO is an independent creative collective based in Bristol UK, delivering digital public engagement projects including the Universal City platform for the University of Bristol. CARGO’s core project is CARGO Classroom: a set of verified teaching resources for Key Stage 3 History which use poetry and evocative multimedia content to introduce learners to new perspectives on History. Developed in close collaboration with a cohort of experienced teachers and subject specialists, CARGO’s resources trace a timeline from ancient history to the modern day, and illuminate the lineage of visionary leadership exemplified by individuals from Africa and the African Diaspora.

In this presentation, CARGO founder Lawrence Hoo will describe the motivations behind and demand for new History resources in the UK curriculum. Some of the resources will be showcased, with commentary from Teacher and CARGO collaborator Tracy O’Brien regarding their structure and value within the curriculum.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
