Lesson Plans are self-led play guides, inspired by Tools for Solidarity by RESOLVE Collective, available for children and all to use for free at The Mosaic Rooms.
Devised through public workshops between July and October in 2023, these Lesson Plans invite partners and participants to reflect on ‘solidarity’ and what this means for them. Traces from these contributions activated The Mosaic Rooms’ garden as a site of making and learning for everyone, and can be used anywhere in the world.

Tools for Solidarity by RESOLVE Collective manifested in The Mosaic Rooms’ garden with a series of interactive sculptures which harness radical play and remix recycled materials to ask young people and their families: what tools are needed in our communities to practice solidarity? Throughout summer, the installation grew and evolved, changing through play, as a way of exploring and supporting practices of solidarity for communities and social causes both locally and internationally.
