Guest Event: A unique oral communication performance looking at some of the issues associated with child protection and adoption - informing public debate

Can we make happy families?  Can we impose identity on a child?  Do we need to ‘rescue’ children or should we be trying to support unhappy families?  What is really at the heart of our child protection system and adoption and why aren’t we talking about this? 

This event is an oral communication performance looking at some of the issues associated with child protection and adoption. 

 

The Performer  

Sarah Phillimore, a Family Law Barrister at St John’s Chambers, Bristol, UK, is a well known campaigner for transparency and honesty in the necessary debate about child protection.  

 

The Artist

Pamela Neil is an artist working in the oral form, storying others thoughts and ideas in live oral communication performances. She creates the work others perform in which complex ideas are communicated orally to their audience.  If you have something to say and want to say it publicly contact - pamelaneil.co.uk
