Shadow Heroes is a series of creative workshops which use translation to engage students in critical thought. Led by professional translators, the workshops are extra-curricular modules aimed at secondary school and university students of all languages including English. A Shadow Heroes series encourages students to think flexibly about complex issues, whilst enhancing their linguistic dexterity.

The workshops were definitely inspiring! I’m interested now in looking into Portuguese, and learning more about the language.

Stand out features included the excellent rapport between the translators running the workshops and the creative emphasis in the sessions. Another excellent feature was the boldness to present pupils with a language they didn’t know and say ‘You can do this!’

The workshops have altered the way I approach language and opened new perspectives. I now approach translation as not only language but also as a story / message.
