Kyra Fundraising Brunch Saturday 2 December 2017 10.30am
Embrace Documentary Film at York St John University in aid of Kyra
Wednesday 29th November at York St John Fountains Learning Centre, 6pm for 6.30pm, tickets available online at Eventbrite
Kyra and York St John University are delighted to present EMBRACE, a social impact documentary that explores the serious issue of body image.
Embrace uncovers why poor body image has become a global epidemic and what women everywhere can do to have a brighter future.
A funny, touching, at times gut wrenching but above all, life changing documentary, the heart of Embrace is one woman’s story. It tells how Taryn Brumfitt went from a body hater to a body lover; from being devastated by her perceived ugliness to proudly posing nude for the whole world to see.
The screening will be followed by a Question and Answer session with the following specialists:
Dr Beth T. Bell, Senior Lecturer at York St John University, specialist in adolescent body image
Dr. Nova Deighton-Smith, Senior Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University, specialist in body image and pregnancy
Dr. Glen Jankowski, Senior Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University; specialist in the impact of culture and systems on body
Green spaces’ can be fantastic for lifting spirits and lowering stress levels (even if just for a while) which is why we’re keen to make the courtyard garden at Kyra somewhere everyone can enjoy year-round.
We’re offering autumn indoor/outdoor gardening activities with the focus on bringing cheery winter & spring colour to the garden. Relaxed, fun sessions with the odd gardening tip thrown in for good measure!
Absolutely no previous gardening experience needed.
From Thursday 5th October – Thursday 9th November inclusive.
Meet in the courtyard 2pm – 3.30pm or in case of rain, in Kyra’s kitchen.
6 places available each week. If you’d like to join us, please contact Gill – firstname.lastname@example.org , speak to Lis or Gill directly at Kyra, or phone Kyra on 01904 632332
