TAKE/HOLD: Film Screening of Embrace

  • whitworth art gallery (map)

TAKE / HOLD is an event curated by Forecast Events and Balanced Flow Yoga exploring the themes of positive body image, self worth and the celebration of women’s bodies. 

The event kicks off the week of Women’s International Day and brings together two visual mediums to create a powerful insight into this important issue which has never been more relevant in society.


We are screening the powerful documentary Embrace at The Whitworth Art Gallery Saturday 2nd March 2019 at 2pm. Embrace follows The Body Image Movement activist Taryn Brumfitt’s crusade as she explores the global issue of body loathing, inspiring us to change the way we feel about ourselves and think about our bodies.



All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting The Body Image Movement, along with the Teen Yoga Foundation whose mission is to promote the well-being of young people through the practice of yoga and mindfulness, and local organisation Girls Out Loud, who work to empower and inspire teenage girls to have confidence, self-belief, emotional resilience and a positive self image.

Join us and bring along your friends, partners, teenagers and anyone you think could benefit from seeing this insightful and inspiring documentary.

Goodie bags will be given to the first 30 tickets sold!

The documentary has an age rating of 12A. Find out more:
