Event Details

11th November, 2022
18:00 - 20:00
The Foundling Museum
40 Brunswick Square

Using dance, music, verbatim and beatboxing, care experienced young people share uplifting and challenging reflections on the care system

Open your ears and embrace artistic ways to explore and learn the complex stories of people in care

Using verbatim, storytelling, beatboxing and dance, care-experienced young people will share uplifting and challenging reflections on the care system. The performance explores the positive potential of foster care through creative practices, and hopes to change the stigma and negativity attached to being in care.

“How can I trust you to hear me? If I share my desires and dreams, will you listen? Will you help me to realise them?” (Care-experienced young person)

Young people have repeatedly said that there could be more space for trust and empathy in the way in which adults care for young people. The event seeks to explore what can make magical moments in care, moments that matter. Moments that live long in the memory.

This is part of a 7-year participatory process with care-experienced young adults led by The Verbatim Formula and People’s Palace Projects. In partnership with the Foundling Museum in London and a team of artists, researchers, and performers, we will discover and extend histories and practices of artistic care. Featuring work from Dr Sylvan Baker, Central’s Senior Lecturer Community Performance Applied Theatre.
