Proud Schools at Norwich Pride

I organised a multimedia exhibition in Fusion in the Forum called "Proud Schools". It showcased all the different ways Norfolk schools are tackling homophobic and transphobic bullying in the classroom and the playground. I made a 15 minute film featuring eight different schools. The exhibition was opened by two of my heros - Rita Adair, Senior Educational Psychologist at Norfolk County Council who has done so much to tackle bullying in Norfolk schools; and Elly Barnes, a pioneer who runs training courses all over the country to make schools more LGBT-friendly. Hundreds of people visited the exhibition including lots of the kids in the film. We had some brilliant feedback.
