Work by young participants from our Destinies project will be showcased on Thursday 29 October, as part of the Care About Care? online festival, a creative live online festival for those who work in, make decisions about or have experience of the care system.
Hear Me: is an evening of short performances that brings together young people with care experience from all over the UK (and the world) to share their words, opinions, feelings and creativity.
Destinies is a co-creation performance piece made with looked after young people, young unaccompanied asylum seekers and professional artists. Young people have written and created characters, scenes, animation, composed music, lyrics as well as singing and performing. The piece has been adapted into a filmed montage – a work in progress, including animation, songs, music, and the young people’s commentary about the process of working through COVID-19 restrictions.

Destinies was originally intended to be a live theatre performance and due to COVID-19 transferred to an on-line experience. It is intended, once restrictions are lifted, that a live theatre performance will be shared with an audience of friends and families, celebrating the creativity of the young people’s hard work, commitment and connection that has been so important during these challenging times.
The project has been funded by emergency funding from Arts Council England Lottery funds, and brings together: Ava Hunt Theatre, with Sinfonia Viva Orchestra, Orchestras Live, and Derbyshire County Council’s Virtual School.
