ArtScience on Screen: Dare To Trust

ArtScience on Screen: Dare To Trust

Join us for ArtScience on Screen: Dare To...; a film program celebrating diverse daredevils from Disney animation, all brought together by their decision to dare.


Those who dared to see how far they could go, those who dared to never leave anyone behind and those who looked at the big, wide world and dared!

Despite cinematic history traditionally showing a bias toward male characters, the protagonist and antagonist of Disney’s first feature length film (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) were both female. Since then they have been joined diverse array of female characters for both little girls and little boys to look up to and emulate into adulthood. ArtScience on Screen aims to shine a light on the many strong, complex female characters within the Disney animation pantheon, offering older visitors a chance to revisit childhood memories and younger visitors a chance to be introduced to these inspirational characters.
