Perth College | Embrace Kids Screening
Perth College is pleased to be hosting Embrace Kids film on Thursday 11 May from 5.45 pm to 7.45 pm in the Judith Cottier Theatre.
In this film, we meet 18 incredible young people, who join Taryn Brumfitt (2023 Australian of the Year) on her mission to help young people embrace their bodies. Their contribution, and the stories of others in the film, help us go on a journey to realise that this complex problem is something we can turn around when we all come together to create change.
This film aims to improve the body image of young people across Australia and the world. Aimed at an audience of 9-14 year olds, but equally engaging for adolescents, teachers, and parents, this film inspires, educates, and advocates for a world where we are not held back by the thoughts we have about the way we look. Instead, young people are encouraged to
figure out what makes them unique and special, and use that to spark change.
The four central themes of the film and resources include:
- Celebrating diversity of appearance, including diversity in relation to gender expression, ability, cultural background, and size.
- Appreciating the functionality of what our bodies can do more than what they look like.
- Being kind to ourselves and others.
- Focusing on real role models.
RUNNING TIME: 79 MIN
