  • Film: Welsh Dragon in Gdansk

    The film documents the first transnational visit of the Project to the City of Gdansk. It shows scenes of the visit and the reactions and comments of the hosts and participants. It reflects the aims and objectives of the Project and the impact it has created. The creative process (of making the film) was itself a learning experience for all involved i.e. learning all the aspects of creating a film. Our thanks go to Malcolm Boorer and everybody involved.
