Open Day – Saturday, June 29

Free We Grow is delighted to invite you to our next Open Day, Saturday 29th June from 1 till 4 PM.

In this occasion, we are dedicating the afternoon to the exploration and reflection on the topic of Empathy.

As part of the activities for the day, we will be screening the documentary Love, Hate and Everything in Between by filmmaker and director Alex Gabbay.

‘The documentary looks into the world of neuroscience, psychology, education and technology to explore the extraordinary relevance of empathy in today’s increasingly interconnected world.
Man’s capacity for kindness and compassion is overshadowed only by his ability to be as cruel and destructive. Can empathy resolve issues of aggression and subjugation, where wars, politics and economic sanctions have failed? ‘

Film will be projected at 2 PM with a duration of 55 minutes.

After the film we will have time for reflection and exchange of thoughts.

Please note that film is suitable for children over 12 years old, due to the graphic nature of some of the scenes. Activities for smaller children will be available during the projection of the film. There will be always an adult from FWG to accompany them and look after them while parents are watching the film.

Entry is free and there are 20 spaces available. Please email us if you would like to attend or have any questions about the event:

During same day and times, Dacres Wood Nature Reserve will be accessible to the public, as part of  the Friend of Dacres Wood Open Day. Everyone is welcome to come and wonder around this hidden gem in the heart of Forest Hill.

We look forward to sharing with you this fantastic day!
