    This paper emerges from a three-year project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council investigating the experiences of, and repercussions for, children who do not find it easy to 'fit in' at school . The project brings together perspectives from art, anthropology and education to explore interdisciplinary ways of anchoring co-produced research in the lived, sensory and embodied experiences of school life, to evoke richer and more located understandings of difference. The project is based in one UK primary school, Alma Park in Levenshulme, Manchester and researchers are working across age groups, from Nursery to Year 6. This paper is the earliest attempt to find a way to transmit the experiences of a group of children, working with an artist to see, smell, taste, feel or hear ‘oddness’ in the school building.
