Embrace: Taryn Brumfitt’s Film About Body Image

The media has a profound effect on us and the way we perceive ourselves and our bodies. On the 18 of January, I was invited to the London film premiere of Embrace, the wonderful story and journey by Taryn Brumfitt. Her story first went viral on Facebook when she posted two images of herself.

 

This is a film about loving ourselves; loving our bodies for what they are…whether they are tall, fat, thin, ageing…the list we can make is endless. Television, the Internet, films and the media have a strong hold on our personal perceptions of what beauty is supposed to be, and sadly because of this, it has contributed to some people experiencing eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia.

 

Young boys and girls, teenagers and young adults should educate themselves about having a healthy body, and learn how to accept themselves for the beautiful person they are inside and this is what Embrace sets out to do.

 

There’s one statement in the film that someone makes, and goes something like this…”I love my body because it’s my soul mate; it’s the home to my soul.”

 

This is such a brilliant and positive film and if you can, do watch it, because it will help us all to love ourselves better and each other.

Tech-EdTech Collaboration

This January we had the opportunity to work with Ubiquity University, a global online university and connect this educational platform to one of our business connections – the award-winning arts incubator Debut Contemporary. We at Serendipity were delighted when these two organisations came together to do something powerful; they formed a partnership to give Ubiquity University’s art students the business know-how to differentiate themselves in the industry, through a curriculum based on topics such as PR and marketing, accountancy, business strategy, brand ID, and global arts markets, among many others.
This Ubiquity University and Debut Contemporary partnership will help artists to create successful business models, so they may spend all their energy on what they really love doing.
