Understanding the history of slavery through images

An innovative digital, tactile and itinerant cultural tool, ‘Iconotouch’ has been deployed in schools, since the start of the 2018-2019 academic year.

For this commemorative year, Iconotouch offers an exceptional digital experience: users can interact with images linked to slavery, enabling young members of the public to acquire new skills through the use of information and communication technologies.

– Familiarising pupils with the reading of different digital iconographic documents
– Familiarising pupils with the ‘jobs’ done by slaves, the slave trade, fugitive slaves and abolition
– Awareness for pupils around issues of memory, history and citizenship, through local history.
