Stramash Social Enterprise and Oban Phoenix Cinema have joined forces to present a showing of the feature length documentary Project Wild Thing. The award winning film is currently touring the UK. It brings the complex issue of the ways in which our children do (or don’t) interact with the natural world to our attention. The project has gathered significant support throughout the United Kingdom from the RSPB, the National Trust, schools, nurseries and other educational organisations.
Stramash delivers top quality outdoor learning, outdoor activities, expeditions and outdoor sports development. Adventure, exploration and challenge are all part of what Stramash can offer you.
