We’re thrilled to announce we will be screening Being and Becoming by Clara Bellar as the first in our series of film and discussion events.  In the film we are taken on a beautiful journey of discovery as one parent travels to meet others across Europe and the US that have chosen to allow their children to grow and learn without schooling.  Whilst specifically a film about Unschooling, it is much more than that, it is a film about how we can trust children to learn by following their interests and it challenges our ingrained ideas about education.

We’ll be following up the screening with a discussion of the key themes raised in the film with a fantastic panel comprised of Kezia Cantwell-Wright, EKSS founder and Unschooling parent, James Friis-Lawrence, ex-student from Summerhill School and Marc Denervaux, Maths Teacher and future EKSS Staff Member.

There will also of course be time to take any questions you may have about our proposal for East Kent Sudbury School.

Suggested donation of £8 per person.
Book tickets with Eventbrite.

Watch the trailer for Being and Becoming below.  We look forward to seeing you all there.
