Embrace: The Union Project
Sunday 26th November 2017
Doors Open: 2pm Starts: 3pm
Embrace: The Union Project aims to put an end to the UK’s body dissatisfaction epidemic. Embrace is a life changing social impact documentary that explores the serious issue of negative body image. Embrace tells the story of Taryn Brum tt’s journey from body loather to body lover – an Australian wife and mother who embarks on an international crusade to change the way we think and feel about our bodies.
Embrace: The Union Project is an opportunity for individuals, teachers, health professionals, businesses and philanthropists to lead a body image revolution throughout the UK. The project seeks 2,000 people to purchase a public licence to screen Embrace (or gift their screening to a school or community group) and in doing so, contribute to a greater legacy for the next generation – vital body image education.
When we accomplish this mission, The Body Image Movement will make the Embrace Education Study Guide accessible to every secondary school across the UK for free. Developed in consultation with education specialists, health professionals and psychologists, The Union Project will allow the Embrace Education Study Guide to be redeveloped in accordance with national UK curriculum standards and be made available as a FREE classroom resource.
I am one of the 2,000 people who are hosting an event to show Embrace: The Documentary. My screening is being held at Neon, Newport on 26th November 2017 at 3pm I look forward to raising awareness around the serious issue of body image dissatisfaction and contributing to the roll out of the Education Study Guide, a necessary educational resource which inspires life-changing conversations in the classroom.
