Our Pop-Up Exhibition
This year for DouglassWeek, the Barretstown Camp team joined forces with a group of Transition Year Students from Celbridge Community School (a town where Frederick Douglass spoke, during his time in Ireland in 1845-1846).
Barretstown facilitated an online workshop with the students and Dr. Adrian Mulligan of Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, who very kindly gave his time to talk about Frederick Douglass and his time and thoughts in Ireland, and we spoke a little about our founder Paul Newman and his vision for children with serious illness.
The discussion was to spark some conversation and research by the students into the ideas of kindness, non-discrimination and humanitarianism.
The students and the Barretstown Camp team present below here, their found words from both men, in the form of this video montage of their powerful words.
