Young Carers: Recent Creative Projects

Hishoro: A Model Island

Our most recent project saw the group create an istallation which they designed and created.  The group created an island complete with soundscape and intertwined stories which was shared at a special event with friends and family.

This island was created through work with Drama Artists Sarah Bradley and Victoria Beesley, Cardboard Artist Charlotte Duffy-Scott, Set Designer Anna Orton, Writer Cathy Forde and Sound Designer Calum Paterson.

When asked to sum up the project in three words the young carers thought the project was “fun, colourful and creative” and “fun, exciting and limitless” with most of the group agreeing their confidence had grown since the project began.
