Pearl on the Foyle Summer Camp Programme

We are all as unique as pearls in their shells. Come and join this wonderful project which explores how exceptional we all are and how our differences can be understood and celebrated. We will use Drama, Art and Storytelling to express our idea and to share these with an audience in a special showcase event.
