An important part of the Dorothy Project is to talk to children and young people who have experienced migration and to find out from them whether the way these experiences are portrayed on film are accurate or helpful.

We will do this through workshops run at schools and other centres, with young people aged between 10 and 17. There will be four workshops of two hours in total, and we will try to run these workshops at times conveninent to you. You will be invited to come along to the first workshop, and are welcome to attend the others too, if you wish.

All information provided in the workshops is completely confidential. When our research is published, it will not give details of any participant’s name, or where the workshops are held.

You and your son/daughter will be given a detailed information sheet before the workshops begin, and you and your son/daughter will also be asked to sign a consent form to confirm that you and they are happy to take part in this project. It’s perfectly fine for you or your son/daughter to decide not to take part, or to withdraw from the project, at any time.

If you have any concerns or questions, you can talk to us at any time.
