Research Lead - Dr Erika Piazzoli, Assistant Professor in Arts Education, TCD

IRC funded, Dr Erika Piazzoli, Assistant Prof in Arts Education at Trinity College Dublin is  exploring the connections between performative language teaching, motivation to belong and second language learning,

She works with community, academic and industry partners to encourage young refugees and migrants to engage with their imagination, while learning English as a second language.

This honours both their heritage identity and their new identity as migrants, while supporting teachers that work with refugees and migrants to use the arts, focusing on the present and future, rather than on the past.
