Laura Farrell / Hampton School. London

Benjamin Dix presented to our Year 9 geography students at Hampton School. He gave a truly inspirational and engaging presentation on the conflicts in Sri Lanka and Somalia and the affects they are having on the civilians. He focused predominantly from the perspective of asylum seekers here in the UK, making it more relatable to the students. He impressively brought the stories to life through his graphic novel and showed the students the methodology involved in creating such art. Benjamin made sensitive and complex issues accessible to 13 and 14 year old students and presented it in a way that captured their attention.
