My Friend Selma


Activity Description

Terra Incognita Arts Present: A remarkable real-life story of one girl’s journey from war in Bosnia to safety in the UK. ‘When I was eight years old my dad set up a charity to help people fleeing danger in Bosnia. He brought fifty refugees over here. We moved into an old boarding school with them. We lived there for four months. It was brilliant – there was a playground in my front garden, we had lots of visitors, people were always feeding me and I learnt to ride a bike. But the best thing about living there was meeting my friend Selma.’ Key themes / values: courage; citizenship; spoken language; community
