Social art exploration looking at how words and phrases
TOTNES will host a special film premiere and fundraiser to show how much more there is to people than meets the eye.
The In Your Own Skin Project is a social art exploration looking at how words and phrases may relate to individuals but not be obvious to others.
International artist, teacher and filmmaker Katheryn Trenshaw (pictured), hosts this fundraising event to help create an independent documentary film.
The event takes place at the Totnes Civic Hall on Thursday, October 18.

The documentary asks the question: What is true of you that I might not guess just from looking at you?
Trenshaw has asked the question of more than 100 people from around the world.
The answers, told one photographic portrait at a time, promise to be surprising, captivating and moving.
Jamie Catto, creator of dance super-group Faithless, and Grammy award-winning producer, said: "Katheryn Trenshaw's In Your Own Skin project confirms my faith in deep essential human beauty and the innate benevolence in us all.
"It is an inspiring visual anthem to humanity."
Trenshaw will be hosting the evening, talking about the project, what it means to her, and opening an interactive question-and-answer session for all.
She will be joined by special guests Chris Paradox and Jo Hardy who will offer a special 5 Rhythms inspired opportunity to move In Your Own Skin with live music from Madrum who will perform music written especially for the film.
This pioneering community building project, follows a diverse group of people such as, poet Matt Harvey, filmmaker Jamie Catto and Afro-European singer Cecilia Kankonda of Zap Mama.
One of the aims of the project is to support transition, resilience and sustainability and the project has been endorsed by Transition Town Totnes' Inner Transition Group as well as the Transition Town Totnes Artist Network.
Katheryn said: "IYOS can be seen simultaneously as a homecoming and a journey. We are hardwired to connect.
"Paradoxically we do this best by being vulnerable and authentic. It seems counterintuitive, and the In Your Own Skin portraits and interviews show it over and over… in Technicolor.
"As an insatiably curious cultural creative, with a passion for psychology and embodied consciousness, I am fascinated by the idea of 'revealing the concealed'. My life's work has taught me again and again, that it is this deep place where real intimacy and vulnerability lie."
The event, is the first in a series to raise funds for the making of this documentary.
There are plans to publish a book and display the work in a photographic art exhibition.
At the event there will be a raffle.
