A show co-created with 3,000 young people from across Europe

A 3 year trans-European project starting in 2018 that explored the artists and audiences of the future. The project consisted of a touring show that worked co-created with 3,000 primary school children across 7 different countries to write, draw and imagine stories from the future in 50 years’ time. The show was made by professional artists from all the partner countries and toured across Europe with a touring and online archive sharing the creative material generated by the young people.

Alongside the show, the partner venues and festivals making work for young audiences compiledaudience development and co-creation toolkits. These shared the working practices of making and promoting work for families and young people (especially harder to reach audiences) using case studies and examples from across Europe.

The project internationalised the freelance workforce with training across the 3 years for makers and administrators through workshops, seminars, meetings and networking, The participating countries were UK, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Norway, Spain, and Poland.

An international project working locally in schools and communities across Europe to tell the story of the future in 50 years time, through the eyes of children. Young people have become the storytellers and futurologists of their local community.

How will they imagine the future of their neighbourhood and their city?

Fantastic and fabulous stories created by the children through 6 months of workshops have been brought to life by professional artists from the UK, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Norway, Spain and Poland, in a new performance and public exhibition that depicts the local area with distinctiveness, humour and imagination.

Though we cannot currently share the show live, please check out our  website with 11 great stories from the project performed!

As part of the project, we have created two industry toolkits. One which looks at Co-Creation and the other which looks at Public Engagement.
