Event description

Description

Join us for a free film screening and discussion about how skateboarding can help youth heal from trauma. Two short films will be presented, along with a short presentation and an opportunity for questions and discussion. Everyone is welcome!

The FIlms:

Push To Heal is a short film made in association with Hull Services and the ChildTrauma Academy. It endeavors to verbally articulate and visually demonstrate the connections between skateboarding and neuroscience, and highlights skateboarding as an activity that can heal the human brain from past trauma. This film also provides a snapshot of how and why skateboarding should be viewed as a viable option as part of treatment for high needs children.

Land of Skate is a documentary filmed on location in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa. It goes behind the doors of Skateistan’s Skate Schools worldwide for the first time, at which over 1,800 children and youth are gaining access to education and opportunities.

The Land of Skate explores how Skateistan has impacted the lives of children and youth in these locations but also how skateboarding has created a global community in a divisive world. Latifa, Ahmed, Soso and Srey Pich may be from opposite sides of the globe, but they are citizens of the same land, united by skateboarding.


Facilitators: Selena Rondeau and Joel Pippus,

A question and answer period and discussion will be offered at the end.
