A brand new interactive experience from Figment Arts.

What makes you who you are? Can one person change the world? What is kindness? We want children in Bevendean and across Brighton & Hove to get involved and make a film about these big questions.  For ages 6-11. Children are encouraged to take part without their grown ups.
