Sensing Helen flier

A new film will be screened at the Priest's House Museum and Garden in Wimborne on Saturday 28 April 2018, 7pm to 8.30pm, and at the Dorset History Centre on Friday 11 May 2018, 4pm to 5.30pm.

'Sensing Helen' explores what life was like in Victorian Dorset for two young women, Sophia and Elizabeth. Both attended the Bristol School of Industry for the Blind in the 1800s. The film follows their journeys through life, tracking their very different outcomes and making comparisons with the lives of visually impaired women living in Dorset today.

'Sensing Helen' is led by Persuasion Arts, produced by Jen Gorden with Michele O'Brien and ScreenPLAY. The project is supported by The Arts Development Company. For more information, visit www.persuasionarts.co.uk/sensing-helen.

Places are free. To book please telephone Jen on 01725 516265 or 07751 525200 or email jenny@yummyjam.co.uk.
