Project Description

Activity

The Two Fires film was made by pupils from Coupar Angus Primary school. They thought it was important for people to know more about what it is like to be a Traveller so they made a film. They want people to know who Travellers are, where they go and what they do.

Can you make a film about who you are, where you go and what you do?

Think about:

Who are the important people in your life?

What experiences in your life are important to you?

What is special about where you live?

What places do you like to go to? Why? What do you do there?

You might also want to include any things that annoy you sometimes. Or things that you like to avoid.
