The Doors Project - exploring the testimonies
At Australian Yearly Meeting 2018 the children discussed the different Quaker testimonies (Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Sustainability) through exploring and imagining what lay behind the images of many different kinds of doors. This activity was inspired by The Doors Project - a creative look at the many different 'doors' surrounding the Meeting House in Melbourne and now available as a book. By each taking a door the children were asked to match their door with one or more of the testimonies and reflect on why they had made that choice. Much fun was then had opening each 'door' and adding illustrations and writing or pasting the testimonies.
Below are examples of the children's creative work.
