Year 7 ADT Faculty Showcase: Adinkra symbols

7X1, 7X2, 7Y1 and 7Y4 have been looking at Adinkra symbols as part of Term 3’s focus on identity and creativity. Adinkra symbols orginate from West Africa and are often formed as stamps which are then printed on cloth to be worn. The symbols carry meaning, whether that be related to an indvidual’s personality or manner, or regarding wisdom or ancient proverbs.

Our students were tasked with creating their own Adinkra symbol which sums up their own personality and/or identity.
