Who Do You Think You Are?

Help a new project.

A new local project invites you to join them for a very special 'Who Do You Think You Are?' on Monday 15 January 2.30pm to 5.30pm at the museum and Wednesday 24 January 2018 9am to 12pm at the Victoria Education Centre in Poole.

Blind since birth, we will discover what happened to Sophia. Using primary and secondary sources, Census and documents from the Dorset and Bristol Historical Archives, we will research the life story of little Sophia.

These sessions will include a rich mix of activities including research, film, drama exercises including a 'Hot Seat' Q+A with Sophia herself. In our second session we will join with young people at Victoria Education Centre for a morning of drama and communication activities.

These workshops are being filmed for the making of a documentary which will be placed online for 10 years on three websites, including You Tube. All parents will be asked to complete a film permission form for their child. You can still attend if you do not wish to be filmed.

Suitable for children aged 8 to 16 years. Funded by Heritage Lottery Fund. This workshop is offered free of charge.

Please bring plenty of snacks and drinks. Parents welcome to stay or drop off.

All our session leaders are DBS checked. Project Coordinator Jenny Gordon 077515 25200.
