Outputs from the project
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.
