Feral Children are an intriguing, disturbing and moving subject, and their stories never fail to capture the imagination.
Especially for children and young adults, this is a topic that triggers debate and critical thinking about serious issues in an immediate and personal way.
What does it mean to be human? How can humans and animals interact? How do children develop? How should we treat people different to ourselves?
Using video footage and stills to explore ideas and trigger discussion, it’ll be an interactive and engaging session for all of us!
